Job Description: 

Purpose-driven nonprofit seeking innovative CEO to help unleash the potential of entrepreneurs and microbusinesses.


Since 2008, Rocky Mountain MicroFinance Institute (RMMFI) has been making an impact. We are a business incubator and financing organization focused on reimagining social and economic mobility. As a highly intentional and purpose-driven organization, RMMFI is guided by its North Star, which states: People are unstoppable forces. Life circumstances are real and sometimes overwhelming, yet they should not determine what we can do in the present or be in the future. We believe everyone should be free to make choices to activate the possible. RMMFI creates the space for communities and people of all backgrounds to realize their unique potential through the power of entrepreneurship.

In the world of business, microbusinesses (those with five or fewer employees) are often overlooked, but did you know an annual increase of just $5,000 in revenues per microbusiness would generate more than $20 billion for our economy?
