Social Impact Leadership Series: Investing for Impact

6:00–9:00 pm
Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya, Mumbai


Across India and beyond, new models of social and environmental investment are emerging, including corporate social responsibility (CSR) programs, social impact bonds, impact investing, and other alternative funding models.

As the landscape of social impact funding changes, the amount of capital invested in these models is growing. A 2014 Intellecap report indicates that, since 2000, venture capital and private equity funds, family offices, and other investors have committed $1.6 billion in funding for Indian social enterprises.

On December 11, join a panel of leaders in this space, including R Ramanan of ATAL Innovation Mission, NITI Aayog, Government of India, Manoj Kumar of Tata Trusts, Eric Savage of Unitas, and Geeta Goel of the Michael and Susan Dell Foundation, for a discussion at the CSMVS Museum in Mumbai. Luis Miranda, '89, will provide welcoming remarks and Sundeep Vira, '10 (AXP-9), will moderate the panel discussion. 

The event is hosted by the Rustandy Center for Social Sector Innovation at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business, in collaboration with the Tata Center for Development at UChicago, UChicago’s Center in Delhi, and the International Innovation Corps.
