A Puzzle Without Corners: Portfolio Construction + Alternative Instruments

Social entrepreneurs need capital that emphasizes both impact and sustainability; investors need to meet return expectations. Creating a  portfolio that drives impact and returns is a puzzle, but alternative instruments (e.g. revenue linked financing, equity buy-backs) can better align founders and investors. This session will introduce several alternative instruments, and will charge teams with constructing a portfolio using these instruments. Attendees will be asked to consider: revenue model, growth potential, exit strategy, and impact potential.

Note: we are aware that the recording starts mid-sentence.  The first few minutes of the session were not recorded.
