Funding the Resistance: Investing in Activists as For-Profit and Non-Profit Entrepreneurs | July 12, 2017

Transform Finance Investor Network Webinar Recordings show

Summary: There is an inspiring trend in the current political environment: more activists are turning to entrepreneurship, and more investors are willing to support efforts to create a stronger civic environment through enterprise. This trend has important implications for who gets funded, how power gets built in communities, and how enterprises can be a tool for transformative social change.  Joining the Transform Finance Investor Network in this webinar are Julie Menter of New Media Ventures, the first seed fund and national network of angel investors supporting media and tech startups that disrupt politics and catalyze progressive change, and Sarah Williams of Propel Capital, an investor in New Media Ventures.
