Google Hangout with Antony Bugg-Levine: Watch the replay of our conversation with an impact investing pioneer

We’re excited to announce NextBillion Financial Innovation’s first Google Hangout. It will take place on Oct. 15 at 2:00 PM Eastern Standard (US) Time, and we’ve got an outstanding guest lined up.

Antony Bugg-Levine is truly a pioneer in impact investing. In fact, as the founding board chair of the Global Impact Investing Network, he convened the 2007 meeting in which the phrase “impact investing” was first coined.

As a managing director at the Rockefeller Foundation, he designed and led the Harnessing the Power of Impact Investing initiative. And he currently serves as CEO of the Nonprofit Finance Fund, a nonprofit financial intermediary at which he oversees more than $340 million of investment capital and works with a range of philanthropic, private sector and government partners to develop and implement innovative approaches to financing social change.

Mr. Bugg-Levine writes and speaks on the evolution of the social sector and the emergence of the global impact investing industry. He is the co-author of Impact Investing: Transforming How We Make Money While Making a Difference. He’s also an associate adjunct professor in the Social Enterprise Program at the Columbia Business School.

We’re delighted to have the opportunity to bring his insights to you in a live interview format – and we’d like to make it as interactive as possible.

So if you have any questions that you’d like to ask Mr. Bugg-Levine, you can share them in the comments section of this post, in an email (jamesmil@umich.edu) or on Twitter (@NextBillionFI). We’ll ask as many audience questions as possible in the interview, but depending on the response, we may have to do so on a first-come/first-served basis. So please submit your questions ASAP.

You can watch the interview live on NextBillion Financial Innovation on Oct. 15 at 2:00 PM EST. Just come back to this post a little before 2:00 PM, and a Google Hangout video window will be embedded below. The video will start automatically, and it will be streamed and recorded to YouTube. The recorded video will remain embedded in this post, so you can view it at your convenience if you don’t have a chance to tune in for the live event.
