[Panel] Financing the Radical - New Ways of Impact Investment for Truly Disruptive Ideas

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

According to Albert Einstein we can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used to create them with. Looking at impact investment, are we thinking out of the box and risking enough to finance radical ideas? Are we investing in ventures that might give truly surprising results? Are we aware of our responsibility in shaping the digital infrastructure of the future? Here we would like to discuss what frameworks finance needs to enable radical ideas and evaluate what best practices are already in place.
