Lauren Cochran
Director of Private Investments at Blue Haven Initiative

Lauren Cochran is Director of Private Investments at Blue Haven Initiative, where she leads strategy and execution for the family office’s portfolio of direct investments.

Lauren makes debt and equity investments with the dual expectation of best-in-class financial returns and maximum positive social and environmental impact. As part of this work she spends more time in sub-Saharan Africa than anywhere else, sitting on the boards of several of Blue Haven’s portfolio companies, working with entrepreneurs, building the ecosystem and finding new investment opportunities. She is also a member of the Blue Haven Initiative Investment Committee.

Prior to joining Blue Haven, Lauren worked for five years at Imprint Capital before the impact investment firm was acquired by Goldman Sachs Asset Management. There, she made investments across the developing world in for-profit businesses seeking to improve standards of living, create economic opportunity and better the environment while also generating a commercial financial return.
