Francisco Noguera at the Global Philanthropy Forum

I just got back from a very exciting trip to Colombia, where the first New Ventures Investor Forum took place last week. I’m preparing a full debrief of that experience and will soon share it here on, so stay tuned for that over the next day or so.

I’m also spending some of my morning preparing to cover this year’s Global Philanthropy Forum, which takes off tomorrow here in Washington DC. Titled “Five Crises, Multiple Solutions and Our Shared Commitment to Act” , this year’s promises a very interesting set of talks and discussions amongst the world’s leaders in the philanthopy/ social investment spaces. I encourage you to take a look at the agenda and the group of speakers that are participating.

I will be attending and writing about most of the sessions relevant to the topic area of, and hopefully sit down with some of the attendees and social entrepreneurs for short interviews. If you are planning to attend the forum or know someone who is, please contact me. It would be great to meet up over there.
