Abstract:

"Modern social entrepreneurship is transforming the way we invest our money and change the world. Within 10 years, investors will channel hundreds of billions of dollars to achieve positive social and environmental impact in housing, health, education, energy, and financial services across the globe. While there are extraordinary financial and social gains to be made, many unanswered questions remain. What's the best way to harness markets to promote social change? And what kinds of investments can we make across the nonprofit, private, and public sectors to achieve a more shared prosperity? This book demystifies the complex world of social entrepreneurship, providing all the information you need to understand social investment and innovation, whether you're a private investor, policymaker, nonprofit manager, or passionate and engaged donor. In clear and straightforward language, former McKinsey executive Georgia Levenson Keohane charts the development of what the New York Times calls "the emerging hybrid of philanthropy and private equity." In Social Entrepreneurship for the 21st Century, a must-read for anyone interested in innovative solutions to social problems, Keohane: Shows how social entrepreneurship has radically transformed the nonprofit, private, and public sectors ; Explores the promise of impact investing--what it really is and how it works ; Illuminates the challenges of bringing billions of dollars in private capital to bear on social problems ; Identifies smart public policies that promote social innovation at the local and national levels ; Recommends specific investment opportunities you can act on now."--Publisher's website.
