Who is Act II for?
You’re not ready to “retire”, but you’re ready to move on from your “day job” and do something different, something more.  You consider yourself...
Janak D.
Former Energy Finance Executive
After a successful career in finance, Janak was ready to use his skills for something more meaningful, but wasn’t sure where he could add value. We connected him with a volunteer opportunity with his local IRS Tax Volunteer program, where he’s now helping senior citizens in his community prepare their tax returns.

Nick K.
private equity firm founder
After a long career in finance, Nick was ready for a fresh start and a little help on taking a leap of faith into something new. He told us that he loved building toys when his kids were growing up, so we connected him with local maker spaces to help him reignite this passion. He dreams one day of owning his own community maker space.

Melissa D.
Former Tech CMO
Of all the work she had done in her marketing career, Melissa was most passionate about writing. She wanted to pursue this further in her Act II, so we connected her with a group of graduate students working on their own storytelling chops. What started as office hours has developed into a new community that she hadn’t yet considered!

Wanda K.
Former Healthcare Executive
Wanda spent most of her career in healthcare, but she didn’t want her Act II to be focused on just one thing like her Act I. After learning of her passion for fashion and desire to give back, we recommended Dress for Success - and she loved it! Looking for more, Wanda is ready to try experiences exploring her other interests and diversify her Act II portfolio.
