In this episode, Capital Insight co-hosts and securities attorneys Jenny Kassan and Michelle Thimesch talk with David Lynn of Mission-Driven Finance, an impact investing firm created to fill the gap between philanthropy and traditional investments in order to accelerate positive social change.
“If you’re a small business or social enterprise or nonprofit and you need $300k and you don’t own hard assets and you’re not on the venture capital path you’re really out of luck…we said that is a perfect place to be moving capital.”
“It should be easy to invest in your community—that is really the goal. Our big focus is to create more opportunities to let non-accredited investors be able to invest in the things they care about. It’s still not easy.”
