Brynne McNulty


Brynne McNulty Rojas is a founder-entrepreneur with experience in real estate investment across the US and Latin America. As Director of Strategic Engagement for the McNulty Foundation, Brynne supports other entrepreneurs around the world as they develop impactful businesses.

Following successful careers at Goldman Sachs, McKinsey and Selina, Brynne co-founded Habi, the leading real estate technology startup in Latin America. Habi introduces transparency and speed into what had been an opaque and slow market that hurt families' ability to plan their lives and utilize their wealth, and prevented lenders from being able to provide credit. Habi is now the leading buyer and seller of homes in Colombia and Mexico, and aims to empower families across Spanish speaking Latin America in the most important transaction of their lives, their homes.

Brynne has also spearheaded an effort to convene leaders from across the political, business, and social spectrum in Colombia to establish an Aspen Institute Initiative in Colombia. This is a long term, nonpartisan forum for debate on issues of critical importance to the country among a cross-section of Colombia’s political, business, education, and non-profit leaders. As interim chair, Brynne has built this initiative – the first of its kind in South America – from the ground up by recruiting senior leaders, leading fundraising efforts, and developing the initiative’s business model.

No stranger to launching bold efforts to address the world’s most pressing challenges, Brynne supports other ambitious problem-solving ventures worldwide as the Director of Strategic Engagement for the McNulty Foundation. Brynne took a lead role in establishing the McNulty Prize, which has dedicated nearly $5 million to projects in 25 countries addressing barriers to health, education, and financial security and is awarded in partnership with the Aspen Institute. Her work at the McNulty Foundation extends to investing in leading students, especially women, who will someday tackle global challenges of their own. An advocate for young leaders, Brynne supports the McNulty Leadership Program at Wharton, the Anne Welsh McNulty Women's Institute at Villanova, and scholarship programs for women in math and science at Villanova University, Hunter College and St. Joseph’s University.

Brynne received an MBA with High Distinction from Harvard Business School, where she was named a George F. Baker Scholar, the highest honor awarded by HBS. She received her BS from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania with a dual concentration in Real Estate and Finance. At Penn, she walked on to the D1 Varsity Lacrosse team as a freshman and was a member of the 2007 Ivy League Championship-winning team. Brynne also sits on the New York Board of Peer Health Exchange, where she serves as Chair of the Governance Committee.

Brynne is a lifelong fan of the U.S. Women’s National Soccer team, loves hiking in Bogota and Aspen, and has climbed Kilimanjaro with her brother Kevin. She lives in Latin America with her husband and their two children.
