Investing for Social Impact

Foundations are increasingly embracing the strategies of the for-profit world to make high-impact investments.  At the same time, various participants within the growing field of “impact investing” are developing a range of innovative approaches to deploy private sector capital to solve pressing social challenges. A panel at The Nantucket Project, a festival of ideas on Nantucket, MA, brought together three different perspectives on this topic: that of a Foundation, an investor, and a social enterprise.

The video below was moderated by Andrew Ross Sorkin; Julie Sunderland (Director of Program Related Investments, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation), Alicia Glen (Managing Director, Goldman Sachs) and Lindsay Beck (Founder, Fertile Hope).
