Risk Taking & Local Systems Investment

Timothy Freundlich May 19, 2021

At the intersection of community recovery, racial and gender equity, unlocking catalytic capital for communities with a holistic approach can create resilience and a massive shift in wealth creation. By bringing innovation and new risk-taking capacity to the table we can reinvent ‘community investing’ to a new paradigm of acceleration of local ownership, entrepreneur development and unlock the power of Opportunity Zones, as well as CDFIs as a capillary distribution system.
