In recent years there has been significant growth in global impact investing – investing that intentionally targets positive social and/or environmental benefits as well as financial returns.

But much of the capital and enthusiasm for impact investing has originated in the US and Europe. Lack of attention to and inclusion of the emerging markets could lead to stagnation in the impact investing sector.

To accelerate the deployment of impact investment capital in underserved regions, The Rockefeller Foundation and partners convened four regional forums last year in Brazil, India, Hong Kong, and South Africa. The forums yielded important insights on how to grow the impact investing ...more

Yesterday’s Autumn Statement has completely dominated today’s news. Not a surprise.
But what is unclear about yesterday's Statement from the Chancellor is where cuts will be made in public spending after 2015.

Clarke once equated advanced technology to magic, alluding to its ability to revolutionize whole industries in a short period of time.

When we started Tea of the People, we ran through endless apps, Snapchat selfies and online paleo recipes. We found something so powerful linking these phenomena that we built our company’s social mission around it. Outside of human imagination, technology is the greatest tool at our disposal to make substantive inroads with the world’s most pressing challenges.

With a lineup of innovative teas, Tea of the People aims ...more
