Some funders take a strong stance on when is best to fund innovation. Whether it be in a promising entrepreneur, early stage only, or at scaling, each funder believes in their course to achieve the greatest impact. For innovators, ill-timed funding can slow progress or speed it up too fast. Both can be risky when lives are at stake. Investment at the right time can liberate innovators to get it right, working with beneficiaries to design and iterate. Funders and innovators will represent each side in a lively debate with the audience deciding when is the right time to fund to unshackle equity.
