Why do we need social capital markets? Sir Ronald Cohen at the 2012 Klion Forum

Sir Ronald Cohen, chairman of The Portland Trust and Bridges Ventures, spoke at the annual Stanley R. Klion Forum.

Given such developed capital markets, why do we need social capital markets? What is social capital? What do these types of investors bring? Sir Ronald Cohen — chairman of The Portland Trust and Bridges Ventures and who has been described as both "the father of British venture capital” and "the father of social investment" — spoke about his leadership experience during his more than 40-year career in impact investing, private equity, and venture capital at the annual Stanley R. Klion Forum. Moderated by Professor Bruce Kogut, director of the Sanford C. Bernstein & Co. Center for Leadership and Ethics.
