Blockchain for Social Impact: The increasing role of technology in impact investing and social entrepreneurship
Today more than ever, we want to take a stand against the injustices we see around the world.
Just as our consumption choices send signals to corporations about what is important to us in
the things we buy, so do the choices we make concerning our finances. Luckily, an increase in
demand fuelled by technological advances has led to more options than ever before. Many of us
feel that we cannot be impact investors without having millions of dollars to invest, but most of
us can activate the money we have to support the issues we care about. This session will start a
dialogue on the intersection of technology and impact investing. Panellists will discuss the benefits
of using technology and the importance of being connected to the on-the-ground impact.
How does technology help make access to financial options available to more people? Are there
downsides of removing the human connection to the businesses you invest in? Panellists will
discuss what is currently available and what they see as the future trends in this space.
