“The best way to predict the future is to create it.” Abraham Lincoln
We live in times where it is obvious that the current economic paradigm cannot uphold much longer. In this week’s session we are going to focus on very hands-on examples that redefine impact investing, to ensure that the human factor and wellbeing is counted in, as well as sense into intergenerational investment and new ways to create impact through multi-stakeholder relationships, breaking up the barrier between classical philanthropy and impact investing.
I welcome as guests:
- Kaitlin Archambault, Founder of Open Future Coalition, weaving a multi-sided ecosystem that mutually empowers us all to be the greatest lever for change by the exchange of capital, skills, & knowledge in service of transparent, measurable impact.
- Joshua Haynes, Founder of Masawa. Masawa’s Impact Fund invests in early stage founders and their companies revolutionizing mental wellness, primarily in Europe via the Nurture Capital approach.
- Indy Johar, Co-Founder of Dark Matter Labs, a strategic discovery, design and development lab working to transition society in response to technological revolution and climate breakdown.
Much like Abraham Lincolm’s quote indicates, we are in crucial times to make sure we build frameworks, templates and applications to reframe the way capital is allocated for a regenerative future for the many generations after us.
