Brian Peterson

Brian re-entered the nonprofit sector in 2018 – after four years as a nonprofit consultant at CliftonLarsonAllen – to be CFO at Minnesota Assistance Council for Veterans, an organization dedicated to the mission of ending homelessness among veterans in Minnesota. Brian also serves as Board Chair of Venture Academy, a public charter school designed to serve students grades 6-12 through entrepreneurial learning and leadership.

Brian has been part of the Social Venture Partners Minnesota community since 2007. His introduction to SVP was as an investee with Students Today Leaders Forever (STLF). His involvement has since continued as a Rising Leader partner and member of due diligence teams, the investment committee, and board.

In 2003, Brian and three friends co-founded STLF with a mission to reveal leadership through service, relationships, and action. SVP and several partners invested significant time, money, and expertise in STLF during its most critical years of major growth and capacity building, helping the organization expand to serve more than 3,500 students annually in over a dozen states across the country.
