Limited Capacity filling up

Funders, investors and financial advisors will play an essential role in helping to resource a Just Transition to a New Economy. In Boston, a new generation of cutting edge capital vehicles are redefining a theory of change for transformative place based ecosystem investing. Participants will explore the Boston Impact Initiative and Boston Ujima Project as case studies for advancing economic justice and the democratization of capital. Transform Finance and other national partners will help contextualize these case studies within broader trends in philanthropy and impact investing. Participants will explore a “restorative capital stack” and leave with a better understanding of opportunities to leverage their funding to catalyze a New Economy movement in the US.
