Amidst the general fragility in the global economy in recent years, there has been a boom in the number of terms coined to describe various approaches and tools in philanthropy such as “social investing”, “impact investing”, “venture philanthropy”, “blended value approach”, and “socially-responsible investing”.This research brief seeks to sharpen the dialog and enable informed action by philanthropic funders, venture intermediaries, and social businesses. The approach taken is not to simplistically find a common ground of discourse. Rather, it is to highlight the perspective of the “other side” with the goal of having a constructive debate on the topic when stakeholders are on the “same page” of the issues being discussed.Click here to download the report.Asia Value Advisors research briefLink to Asia Value Advisor’s website.
