The Power and Impact of Blended Finance with Jennifer Kenning
The traditional, bifurcated use of capital — philanthropy and investing — has in recent years been transformed by visionary impact investors and their advisors. They view philanthropy and private investments as complimentary and, in some cases, integrated funding instruments that allow investors to better align social and environmental values and goals with the totality of their wealth and to provide more sophisticated and effective funding to impact enterprises.
This approach, commonly called blended or integrated finance, stacks philanthropic funding and private capital investments in creative ways to help unlock and fuel the emerging impact economy. In this live fireside chat and audience Q&A, Impact Entrepreneur’s Laurie Lane-Zucker welcomes Align Impact co-founder and CEO Jennifer Kenning to discuss the uses of blended finance and how it is helping to power the transition to a more sustainable and equitable world.
