Modern philanthropy is looking for different ways to diffuse capital into the markets, and how to make traditional investments in non-traditional settings, like 'social' enterprises. Here, Kevin discusses some of the capital vehicles, including the confusion that can occur by applying capital financing to inherently unprofitable structures, like nonprofit organizations. It is an interesting interview with an admittedly different viewpoint on the issues. Definitely worth listening to for a contrarian perspective of B Corporations and the B Corp designation.
