And, thoughinternships with large financial firms help to expose students to the field as well as enhance resumes, an internship with a firm that focuses on impact investment can be equally advantageous. The four of us are thrilled to be working for RSF Social Finance , a San Francisco-based impact investment firm that offers a different, and for us a more personally satisfying, experience. At the AshokaU Exchange in February 2013, we met Ted Levinson, Director of Lending atRSF Social Finance, and convinced him to give us the opportunity to gain experience in this innovative field. Impressed by our enthusiasm and commitment, he put us in touch with a nonprofit that benefited from impact investments: DC Central Kitchen. DC Central Kitchen is a Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit that provides culinary training to at-risk individuals using local recycled food in order to provide healthy school lunches for grade school students.

Dinkic said he would remain as finance minister, while the economy portfolio would go to the SNS, Serbia’s biggest party, paving the way for a fuller cabinet reshuffle. Dinkic had previously resisted splitting up his ministry, but Prime Minister Ivica Dacic warned on Saturday that the coalition would go on without him if he did not. Financial markets seem likely to welcome Dinkic’s continued presence in government.
