Introducing the Oxford Social Finance Programme Webinar31 July 2017
This event is organised by Saïd Business School
16:00 to 17:00
Join Co-directors Alex Nicholls and Gayle Peterson in conversation with Dean Peter Tufano. Our discussion will explore a number of key questions:
- Why is Social Finance critical in addressing the world’s greatest problems? How is it different from Impact Investing?
- How can creative, blended capital and innovative cross-sector partnerships take global solutions to scale?
- How is our trendsetting research shaping the field of Social Finance?
Impact Investing, venture philanthropy, and corporate engagement with purpose are all crucial to the future of Social Finance. Individually, they have vast potential but it’s only when they work together collectively, do they become more than the individual sum of their parts. Uniting these resources will enable us to tackle the greatest challenges of our time—climate change, poverty alleviation, food security, sustainable cities, gender equality.
