One year later: the creators behind one of the world’s largest impact funds reflect on lessons learned
As corporations invest in social ventures, their investment dollars — sometimes to the tune of $100 million, as with the TELUS Pollinator Fund for Good — determine which enterprises will scale and how, thereby influencing the ecosystem and catalyzing lasting positive change.
Canada — and the world, for that matter — is in a time of massive societal transitions. We’ll need fresh perspectives and audacious solutions to make it to the other side more inclusive, equitable, and thriving. By investing in sustainable solutions to improve lives and creating business models rooted in impact, the future will be brighter and healthier for generations to come.
From digital equity to music-based mental health treatment, these new social impact founders are tackling some of the most prevailing issues affecting Canadians today. To support and invest in these new ventures is vital for building communities’ resilience in a post-pandemic world.
