New York, New York--(Newsfile Corp. - March 11, 2024) - US presidential candidate Jason Palmer, an entrepreneur, impact investor, and philanthropist, has joined the speaking roster at The Activist Investor Conference hosted by DealFlow Events on March 21.

Palmer will discuss "Conscious Capitalism and Shareholder Activism" during the event, drawing on three decades of experience in the capital markets.

He has held executive and leadership positions at multiple organizations, including Microsoft, Kaplan Education, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and the impact investor firm New Markets Venture Partners. New Markets is focused exclusively on double-bottom-line investments in innovative, high-impact, early, and growth-stage educational and labor force technology companies that improve student and worker outcomes.

"Over my thirty-year career, I've had the honor of working with thousands of entrepreneurs and tens of thousands of small business owners," Palmer says. "I firmly believe in the power of small businesses and mission-driven founders to make the world a better place."

Palmer has also served as a director for more than a dozen successful businesses, several of which have been acquired by publicly traded companies. Prior to his work with New Markets, he served as Deputy Director at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation for three years. He led postsecondary innovation efforts to improve the outcomes of disadvantaged college students by investing in colleges, universities, and entrepreneurs pursuing digital and adaptive learning, student coaching and advising, financial aid innovation, and employer pathways.
