Social finance & innovation, with Graham Singh
Over the last decade or so we have witnessed the rise of new ways for engaging in the betterment of communities by providing access to investment capital, creating public-private partnerships and expanding the range of possibilities for identifying solutions to complex social problems. In this episode, we are digging into a growing part of the mixed ecology that makes up social good in this country - social innovation.
Social innovation is broadly defined by new ideas, methods, and practices for solving social or environmental problems which, once adopted, have a transformative impact across organizations, communities, regions, and systems. Since the current federal government was elected in 2015, it has also expressed a keen interest in social innovation as a way to address major societal issues.
To discuss this rapidly growing trend, we’re joined by Graham Singh, Chief Executive Officer of the Montreal-based Trinity Centres Foundation.
