In this episode of ComCap The Podcast, we revisit the 2016 ComCap conference session “The Future of Social Enterprise Funding”. A social enterprise is an organization or initiative that marries the social mission of a non-profit or government program with the market-driven approach of a business. This panel discussion focuses on the emerging tools that are helping social enterprises secure capital, and on the flipside, how some cities and demographics are divesting from Wall St. looking to invest elsewhere.
