Capital + Causes: Financial Innovation and Impact Investing

  • Liu Idea Lab for Innovation and Entrepreneurship (Rice University) 6100 South Main Street Houston, TX, 77005 United States (map)

Funders and investors supporting social enterprises have become increasingly sophisticated, identifying new structures and mechanisms to inject capital into an organization to support its growth and scaling. Innovation in the types of capital deployed and the ways in which it structured is allowing social enterprises the flexibility they need to more effectively scale their impact. Impact Hub Houston and LILIE (Liu Idea Lab for Innovation and Entrepreneurship at Rice University) will host a series of short TED-style talks from experts that explore how new financing mechanisms are expanding traditional funding models beyond traditional grants and direct equity investments.
