The GSG is an independent global steering group catalysing impact investment and entrepreneurship to benefit people and the planet.

The GSG currently has 18 member countries plus the EU, as well as active observers from leading network organizations. Chaired by Sir Ronald Cohen, the GSG brings together leaders from the worlds of finance, business and philanthropy.
At the GSG, Krisztina is responsible for the development of National Advisory Boards in new countries, the establishment of global partnerships with international institutions, and the overall strategy to accelerate the development of the impact investment ecosystem globally through collective action.
Prior to joining GSG, Krisztina co-founded and led the Global Social Entrepreneurship Network (GSEN), the global network of organisations supporting early-stage social entrepreneurs in over 70 countries.
