Cracking the Code: Innovative Models on the Path to Aligning Profit and Purpose

Daniela Kandel Evergreen Innovation Platform

In a world where market failures often hinder the viability of impact-focused ventures, catalytic capital emerges as a pivotal force in transforming these ventures into profitable entities. This session delves into innovative models that recalibrate the risk-reward equation, making previously unprofitable initiatives lucrative. We’ll explore the evolving landscape of catalytic capital, examining:

Models: Models that shift the profitability paradigm for impact ventures
Levers: Levers for value creation in response to market failures / (ie what levers can we pull to make something that perceived higher risk / lower return to become
The dynamic roles and strategies of asset owners and operators in blending traditional boundaries towards a unified goal of impactful investment (both changes in the role of traditional fund allocators and the rise of new leaders)
Examples: Two examples for alternative models that are changing the risk reward equation with catalytic capital (one sector septic and the other stage specific)
