Constance Thurmond ’19

Constance Thurmond was born and raised in Miami, FL, and is the proud product of Miami-Dade Public Schools. After graduating with an Associate of Arts in Philosophy and Business from Miami-Dade Honors College, and a B.A. in Ethics, Politics & Economics from Yale University, she started her career working with a social-impact-driven technology venture, FreeWill. While there, she partnered with nonprofits to provide software to donors that encouraged them to leave a bequest to a nonprofit of their choice. By the time she left, Constance and her team generated $3B worth of commitments to nonprofits.

In 2022 she founded Kora Insights, a consulting firm that supports entrepreneurial initiatives focused on social impact through custom research and trailblazing events. She now leads projects focused on changing lives through entrepreneurship. She has worked with organizations including the Platform for Social Impact, Advanced Regenerative Manufacturing Institute, Jrue and Lauren Holiday Social Impact Fund, Social Enterprise Greenhouse, and Korean Innovation Center. She is passionate about the role that access to capital can play in elevating under-resourced communities and is a proud member of the YLAN Board.

Constance lives in Brooklyn, NY where you can also find her dancing professionally in between hunting for the best local eats.
