Current approaches to social investment were conceived in the mid-2000s. Since then we’ve seen big changes from the financial crisis in 2007 to the UK Brexit vote in 2016. How should social investment change to meet the needs of our changing world?

To what extent do these developments suggest previous priorities have been wrong? What, if anything, should we (people involved in social/impact investment) be doing differently in response?

 

Some of the specific questions could include:

How can social investors can help charities and social enterprises to bid for public contracts now public sector commissioners have far less money?

How will social investment in ‘the inclusive economy’ be different to social investment in ‘The Big Society’?

How could social investment help to tackle some of the challenges and respond to opportunities created by Brexit?

 

This is a Flip Finance event supported by Big Society Capital
