On Doing Well and Doing Good

Session 3
Advanced Course

Over the last decade a new breed of venture capitalism has emerged: social impact investors who invest in sustainable and scalable enterprises among the poor. These enterprises generate social returns in terms of lives impacted and innovative goods and services that serve the poor. This lecture will look at businesses designed to tackle issues of poverty in Africa and Asia in the areas of education, sanitation, cookstoves, recidivism and human trafficking. It will describe the growth of the social impact investment universe from angel investors, family offices to government and institutional social venture funds.
