Impact Invest­ing in Devel­op­ment: Scal­ing Alter­na­tive. Energy, Mobile Tech & Agri­cul­ture

November 20, 2013 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Invested-DevelopmentJoin the Social Enter­prise Insti­tute as we wel­come Miguel Granier, Founder and Man­ag­ing Direc­tor of Invested Devel­op­ment in his guest lec­ture enti­tled, “Impact Invest­ing in Devel­op­ment: Scal­ing Alt. Energy, Mobile Tech & Agriculture.” 

Invested Devel­op­ment is an impact invest­ment man­age­ment firm that sup­ports rad­i­cally afford­able and inno­v­a­tive solu­tions to poverty in the alter­na­tive energy, mobile tech­nol­ogy, and agri­cul­tural tech­nol­ogy space. 

ID recently raised $20M USD to launch the BSP Fund, a port­fo­lio which sup­ports for-profit social enter­prises such as Promethean Power Sys­tems - a com­pany that designs and manuf­ca­tures rural refrig­er­a­tion sys­tems for com­mer­cial cold-storage appli­ca­tions in emerg­ing markets. 

In his talk, Mr. Granier will dis­cuss the chal­lenges he faces as a social entre­pre­neur in the fast grow­ing impact invest­ing space, his vision for the BSP Fund, and why he believes invest­ing in clean, mobile, ag tech will change the way we do busi­ness in the global south.
