-99% to 0% Return: The Untapped Market and how Recoverable Grants can Fund the Missing Middle

You voted for this

This session will explore how recoverable grants can be used to capitalize impact funds and how the -99% to 0% return spectrum holds the key to unlocking higher-risk, more entrepreneur-friendly investments to social enterprises in the missing middle 

The session will examine how Beneficial Returns in partnership with Miller Center demonstrated the effectiveness of this strategy through the Truss Fund, designed to provide low-interest emergency bridge loans to social enterprises impacted by the COVID19 Crisis. And will offer a path forward for how a similar structure can be used to support social enterprises that have been overlooked by more traditional forms of capital.
