How to you create good money? Are good intentions good enough? Do women use the power of their pocket book enough? Do we think hard enough about our purchasing decisions? Last night I was out having conversations with three brilliant women who were engaged to talk about social finance, women and love at an event organised by The Side Room. Amanda Feldman, director at Impact+ and Bridges Venture, Monica Middleton, Director of OikoCredit an Servane Mouazan founder of Ogunte gave us three different but equally important perspectives on how women can use the power of money to create better business, deliver on good intentions, create good work by asking powerful questions, and create good intrinsically valuable money.
Social finance may only represent 1% of the total available funds on the plant for investment but it is a rapidly growing sector and one which is fast becoming the natural home of women.
