Rockefeller Foundation Breakfast: Innovative Financing
October 11, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am EDT
The Beeck Center for Social Impact + Innovation and The Rockefeller Foundation invite you to an interactive breakfast panel at Georgetown University.
Innovative finance represents a set of financial solutions that create scalable and effective ways of channeling private money from the global financial markets towards solving pressing global problems. Visionary leaders are building a new funding paradigm at a time when aspirations to meet global challenges like climate change, energy, poverty, and social inequality far exceed the resources of traditional funders.
The breakfast panel, followed by an interactive Q&A with the audience, convenes cutting-edge thinkers in the field of innovative finance who will highlight emerging instruments and case studies such as sovereign insurance, pay-for-success securities, catastrophe bonds, blockchain technology, and publicly traded equity vehicles, with a focus on the practical implications behind these innovations – designed to scale and yield both attractive investor returns and social value.
MonetaGo’s CEO, Jesse Chenard will be speaking about blockchain at the event from 9-11am.
