We drive capital toward effective solutions for underserved communities, using data and rigorous analysis to guide our decisions. We identify scalable and sustainable paths to positive change, tackling entrenched social and economic challenges.

Our approach is informed by deep expertise in finance, entrepreneurship and social justice. Co-founders Andi Phillips and Liz Luckett, both experienced investment professionals with diverse backgrounds, joined forces to address market gaps in impact investing. The team's engaged approach leverages significant operational expertise and technical skills across sectors.
We’re named for Maycomb County, the setting of Harper Lee’s classic novel To Kill a Mockingbird. Lee used Maycomb, a fictional district in Depression-era Alabama, as a backdrop for her universal story of the pursuit of justice. Her story sparked conversations about equity that still resonate today. Maycomb seeks to continue this dialogue, bringing innovative ideas to light through action.
