Systemic Investing for Urban Transformation

Dominic Hofstetter TransCap Initiative

This session will explore the role of foundations in anchoring place-based, systemic investment programs aimed at catalyzing the transformation of cities. It will put a spotlight on ongoing place-based investment programs considered to be the current innovation frontier (such as Kresge Foundation’s “Woodward Corridor” facility or McKnight Foundation’s “GroundBreak Coalition) to surface lessons learnt and discuss where these programs are — and aren’t — adopting key ideas from the emerging field of systemic investing. The session will conclude with a facilitated conversation about how these efforts could be strengthened, and what an institutional innovation could be that has the power to catalyze a much more strategic, coordinated approach to deploying capital for the purpose of building low-carbon, climate-resilient, just, and inclusive urban communities.
