The AltFinance initiative will be administered by ALT Finance Corporation, a non-profit organization established by the three founding firms.

Most recently, he served as chief executive at The Company Lab, a nonprofit startup accelerator supporting entrepreneurial growth in southeast Tennessee. Shaw has also led programs dedicated to innovation, equity and development of young professionals at the Montgomery TechLab and MLT.

Shaw earned his MBA from Duke University, a B.S. in Mathematics from Morehouse College and another in electrical engineering from Georgia Tech. “AltFinance is uniquely committed to building and expanding pathways for Black students at HBCUs toward careers in alternative investment management. We believe there is no one better suited to lead our efforts than Marcus, who brings more than twenty years of financial and non-profit experience,” said Trey Pruitt, President, ALTFinance Board of Directors. “On behalf of the Board, I would like to welcome Marcus to AltFinance and look forward to working together to drive increased diversity in the alternatives industry.”
