Smart Social Impact Financing 2.0

What if a next generation of social impact investment benefited from the revolutions in blockchain and artificial intelligence? The challenges of social impact bonds remain with high transaction, evaluation and on-going monitoring costs. With digital technologies reducing transaction costs, it is time to design and test more dynamic outcomes accounting and price discovery mechanisms for various social and sustainable outcomes, enabling us to promote broad long term shared values instead of only looking at cost avoidance.
