Remarks from Sir Ronald Cohen, Chair of the Social Impact Investment Taskforce established by the G8, at The Mansion House on Impact Investment
The "father" of venture capital in the United Kingdom, Sir Ronald Cohen, also helped give birth to important innovations in social investment: In his own remarkable, inspirational words: "I believe we are now in the early days of a social revolution. A rising wave of social entrepreneurship follows the wave of business entrepreneurship. It seeks to make a difference, to be meaningful, to improve people’s lives. The equality of opportunity that has been our mantra for decades, as the foundation for a fair and thriving society, is calling us to confront social challenges."
