Can Blockchain Revolutionize Impact Investing?

Barbara Libove May 26, 2021

Socially-motivated organizations face increasing pressure to track impact data. Enter blockchain and other distributed ledger technologies (DLTs), which can lay the blueprint for a new model, ensuring a secure and trustworthy exchange of services and information. DLTs can help organizations increase efficiency and cut costs without sacrificing trust and data quality. There are several early examples of leveraging DLTs to tell a compelling impact story, and the model has great potential for transforming the way individuals and institutions make investment decisions and track results.

Note: other speakers TBD from at least 2 other organizations, for a total of at least 3 organizations represented.
