In the face of rising challenges, from economic inequality to climate emergency, charities, public agencies and businesses worldwide are looking for solutions that can deliver impact at scale and speed. A growing impact investment market has developed in response, seeking social start-ups to solve our most urgent problems through rapid, scalable innovation. But is it time to re-think the role of social entrepreneurs in creating a more just, equal and sustainable society?
Reflecting on the RSA’s first Impact Accelerator programme, which has focused on the growing challenge of Economic Security, this special event, in partnership with the Mastercard Center for Inclusive Growth, will feature Charles Leadbeater, a leading authority on innovation, Jennie Winhall a social ventures and creativity expert, Payal Dalal from the Center and RSA Director of Innovation Rowan Conway. They’ll present a new, human-scale approach to accelerating and sustaining social innovation – and introduce an emerging generation of “impact entrepreneurs” to make the case for a new kind of collective impact movement.
