#6 Redefining Money, Value and Impact

“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.

#9 Real Estate as a Driver of Change

The title seems almost a contradiction as we see the housing and affordability crisis mainly driven by extractive real estate business models in many metropolitan areas around the globe.
But this is not carved in stone. We can truly sense into the soul of a property and feel into what that space within its given surrounding really wants to serve for. And create the circumstances that enable a broad variety of stakeholders to cocreate a place full of abundance including the arts and take sustainability really to the next level.

#8 Facilitating large scale cultural change (#2)

How can we facilitate the many chrysalis cells for the emerging, regenerative paradigm that are so far often not connected, when already aligning groups is quite challenging? We truly need groups of groups that share a common North Star, all while they still pursue their own goals, obviously. This is an undertaking that has never been done before on a global scale. But we know leaps in history are possible, from the abolition of slavery, the women’s liberations movement, the end of Apartheid, the fall of the Berlin wall.
