Celebrating Holiday Cheer and Impact Investing
Friday, Dec. 14, 2012
Earlier this week the Center was delighted to host a holiday reception to celebrate the accomplishments of the last year, like the graduation of several GSBI Online cohorts, and the first year of our GSB Fellowship program.
The main event of the evening was John Kohler's presentation of his new research proposal for a demand-dividend investment vehicle for impact investing.
The Demand-Dividend project work will include final financing model design, a regression analysis on existing enterprises, and the creation of flexible term sheets. The Argidius grant will fund the field-oriented phase - preparing to test the new financing model with between four and six enterprises beginning in early 2013. Planning and initial diligence visits will occur in the autumn of this year.
Two years ago we launched a dedicated Impact Capital initiative with the aim of preparing social enterprises to move beyond philanthropic grants to attract private investment capital. Early work culminated with the release of a white paper, Coordinating Impact Capital in the summer of 2011.
