What we invest in today will determine our planet’s future. In 2015, the United Nations adopted the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that were created as a global call to action for positive change. The SDGs focus on ending poverty, protecting the planet, and ensuring prosperity for all. The UN estimates that developing countries alone face a $2.5 trillion gap in funding to meet these targets.
Today’s guest on No Ordinary Business, Stuart Minnaar of Fundie Ventures, a student-run impact investment firm based in Madrid, is here to share how impact investing is opening up private capital to address social needs and the potential to help fill the SDG funding gap.
