Bringing Scale to Social Entrepreneurship

December 11, 2003

Co-sponsors: Woodcock Foundation, Acumen Fund, Ashoka, Common Good Ventures, Women’s World Banking

Woodcock invited grantees to join our board and a half dozen other funders in a conversation about the extent to which the world is prepared to take advantage of the capabilities that these four entrepreneurial nonprofits have built up, what financial instruments are currently available to them, what kind of financial institutions their own clients will need in five years, and what philanthropies can do to meet those needs.
