SOCAP10 is pleased to announce that The Gates Foundation will be joining the ranks of opener Jacqueline Novogratz (Acumen Fund), Matt Flannery (Kiva.org), Willy Foote (Root Capital ), Jay Coen Gilbert (B Lab), Casey Verbeck (The Lilith Fair), Woody Tasch (Slow Money), in discussing “What’s the next thing to do? What’s the action that will make the biggest difference; the difference we need now?”
Representatives of the Bill & Melinda Gates foundation will discuss the foundation’s Program Related Investments (“PRI”) initiative including the rationale for charitable investment, the value of investment partners to leverage expertise and capital, and the foundation’s hopes for philanthropy in the social capital market. Remarks will be followed by a deep dive into their experience putting this PRI approach to work with Root Capital.
