Part of the MaRS Global Leadership Series.
An equity investment to a Canadian business that employs marginalized workers, a loan to a private school in India, and working capital for a Ugandan fair trade exporter—what do they have in common? They all rely on impact investment for support.
Listen to Antony Bugg-Levine of the Rockefeller Foundation—the leadership behind this emerging investment industry—and find out how for-profit investment can be used to solve environmental and social challenges. Themes include: Impact Investing and new emerging investor platforms, Global Impact Investing Network, Social Impact Metrics, IRIS (Impact Reporting and Investment Standards) , Social innovation/Social entrepreneurship.
