Collaboration and finance innovation
Impact investing and investing in innovation reach their full potential for success when the best resources, know-how and experience can collaborate with stakeholders and with structured financing to complete the full investment cycle or take the investments to a sustainable stage. Private equity, banks and sources of public funding are often mono-linear models with finance as a product, but finance can be itself a sustainable component. Collaboration Capitalism generates innovative financing solutions as part of a complete solution. Just as collaboration is a dynamic process that continues on after investments are made to ensure success, structured finance and investments can be aligned with sustainable goals including for example community bonds, local social stock exchanges and cooperatively funded projects.
