Social investing has a long and distinguished history. Successful entrepreneurs have provided venture capital from everything from lending libraries to disaster relief efforts to third-world medical care.
What separates those efforts from the Business of Good Foundation is our commitment to engaged philanthropy. Through engaged philanthropy, social investors can infuse their charitable activities with the principles and tools of venture capital investing—the very things that made them successful. Our model allows social investors to become closely involved with a limited portfolio of charities by providing them with an invaluable combination of financial, intellectual, and social capital.
