Spurned on by the launch of Big Society Capital, the last year has been one of the busiest in the social investment marketplace.
The hard part – getting more deals done to increase the scale and impact of social enterprises – is yet to come, and there are still tough questions for government, investors and social enterprises to answer. Eight of them in fact, which impact investor James Perry lays out in a thoughtful blog below.
Elsewhere on Livewire, we bring you news of a £600k fund for digital social businesses, a new wave of experts to help you get investment ready and sad news about the further dismantling of the Grameen Bank by the Bangladeshi government. The UK government gives £250m in aid to Bangladesh every year, but has yet done nothing to stop the state-takeover of one the world’s most renowned social enterprises. Why not tweet our Minister for Civil Society Nick Hurd and ask why.
Thanks for reading.
