Breaking the Mold: Using Philanthropic Investment to Address Market Failures and Build Bridges to A Better World

Chloe Ray Social Finance

Inequality and climate change are the defining problems of our age; if we want to address them, traditional philanthropic models alone aren’t going to cut it.

A growing number of philanthropists and entrepreneurial changemakers are breaking the mold – using catalytic philanthropy as part of the capital stack needed to address market failures and fund innovative impact-first business models. These impact-driven investments offer outsized social and environmental returns. They also have the potential to upend conventional assumptions about risk, impact, and return, while providing solutions that can match the scale and complexity of the problems they seek to address. Join UBS, the world’s largest global wealth manager, and Social Finance, a national nonprofit mobilizing capital for impact, for a discussion on leveraging philanthropy to catalyze change, break down barriers, and address systemic inequities.
