E54: Social Investment

March 24, 2019

 

In this podcast, we had the pleasure to speak to Geetha Rabindrakumar, Head of Engagement at Big Society Capital. Big Society Capital aims to improve the lives of people in the UK by connecting social investment to charities and social enterprises.

 

Our discussion focused on what exactly is social investment, how does it differ from traditional forms of funding, how can charities, small, medium and large, take advantage of this relatively new funding stream, what are the benefits and risks of social investment and what do Senior Management Teams need to consider before taking on this potential opportunity.

 

Throughout the episode, Geetha touches on several successful examples of social investment.
