Last month, I visited the Said Business School in Oxford for the second time. My first trip was two years ago to attend the Skoll World Forum on Social Entrepreneurship. The occassion this time was representing ACV at the third annual conference of the Impact Investing Policy Collaborative. Just three weeks before our event, Prime Minister David Cameron took advantage of his G8 Presidency to introduce impact investing to the world stage as well as showcase Britain’s leadership in this growing field. At the summit, G8 leaders acknowledged that impact investing is a valuable tool for solving some of our world’s most pressing social problems and agreed to promote it by creating an enabling policy environment that can support promising innovations and help scale market-based solutions.
