February 1, 2021

Listen to Brian discuss ways he's help bringing together investment, the right mix of people, and new opportunities for residents of North Philadelphia.

On this episode I’m speaking with Brian Murray, the CEO and Founder of Shift Capital, a Certified B-Corp impact real estate group headquartered in the Kensington neighborhood of Philadelphia and focused on aligning capital and philanthropy with underserved communities.

Brian is a seasoned entrepreneur who strives to be a catalyst for positive change. Through his work at Shift, Brian is focused on finding better solutions at the intersection of society’s most difficult urban challenges - intergenerational poverty, urban revitalization, access to opportunity, and community displacement.

Shift Capital is a national leader in creating more inclusive neighborhoods. Shift’s first fund, Shift Neighborhood Fund, takes a place-based approach to neighborhoods in North Philadelphia that have suffered decades of neglect. Through inclusive economic strategies, mission-aligned capital, and a community focus, Shift has sought to change the narrative around how communities can benefit from positive change.

Brian is a Peace Corps alumnus and a MBA graduate of Yale School of Management.
