New York, NY, October 26, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- What’s happening with impact investing? Will it attain, as JPMorgan Chase suggests, its own place in investor’s portfolios? Can it change the world or only nudge it along a more sustainable path?
Antony Bugg-Levine and Jed Emerson literally wrote the book on the subject, Impact Investing: Transforming How We Make Money While Making a Difference. Their book is the first to chart a course for “blended value” investment strategies that make money while improving social and environmental conditions.
On Monday, November 7, 12n-1 pm ET, the two will present an online seminar, Impact Investing: Challenges and Prospects, hosted by Ventureneer.
“If you want to know how to make your money not only grow, but build a better world, these are the guys who can show you the way,” said Geri Stengel, founder of Ventureneer.
In the webinar, Bugg-Levine and Emerson will explore the roots of impact investing, discuss examples of its practice today, and explore what challenges need to be addressed in order for this investing practice to attain its full potential, including:
-cultivating transformational leaders
-measuring blended value
-bringing in philanthropic capital
-limits and challenges of impact investing
Anyone who cares about the social value of the business they start, grow or invest in will find this thought-provoking and encouraging presentation useful in charting their own business course.
