The Libra Future Fund (LFF) is run by Erik Hayward, Chelsea Callanan, Lynn Peel and Seabren Reeves. All of the four directors are younger than thirty-five years old. While some might view the youth of the LFF Board as problematic, we at the Future Fund believe that our youth affords us the ability to relate more closely to our applicants. This ability to relate to our potential associates, we believe, will help to render us a more potent institution.
