Sarah Godlewski is the Co-Founder of MaSa Partners, a social impact investment venture dedicated to providing financial capital, advisory services, and mentoring to socially responsible, early-stage companies. She serves on the board of multiple social enterprises ranging from technology to healthcare, and believes entrepreneurs are essential to building a better world.
Before turning to impact investing, Godlewski was a management consultant for Booz Allen Hamilton where she led strategic planning and performance management efforts for government agencies, businesses, and non-profits. Her work for the Under Secretary of Defense saved taxpayers over $10 million annually and, in recognition of her leadership, Godlewski became the youngest person to receive the Booz Allen Women’s Success Award. Godlewski also served as the inaugural Director of Strategy and Performance for Arapahoe County, Colorado – helping one of the fastest growing counties in the country effectively engage citizens to create a meaningful strategy and performance based budget. Her work for Arapahoe County was featured in Public Manager Magazine and Workforce Live!
Godlewski's true passion is her philanthropic work. She chairs the UNICEF USA’s Advocacy Leadership Group, and recently served on a Bipartisan Congressional Task Force for PTSD that addressed the epidemic facing millions of service members, veterans, and their families. In addition, Godlewski serves on the board of different organizations that address the gender gap with women in business and women in politics. As a fifth generation Wisconsinite, she is active in her home state, where she leads community organizing efforts and is focused on building an entrepreneurial ecosystem that will result in a stronger, twenty-first century economy.
Godlewski graduated Magna Cum Laude with a degree in conflict transformation from George Mason University. She is a National Security Fellow with the Air War College, a graduate of the Women’s Campaign School at Yale, and is part of the University of Pennsylvania’s Executive Program for Public Administration.
When she is not working or volunteering, you can find Godlewski cheering for the Green Bay Packers or doing something outdoors with her husband Max and their rescue dog Tanner.
