Organizations ... Social Impact Exchange
An initiative in support of Social Impact

The Exchange’s goal is to build the field of scaling and develop an efficient capital marketplace that provides reliable funding for scaling high-impact nonprofit initiatives.

I have sent the following to the Social Impact Exchange organization via their contact message form:

The Social Impact Exchange may well be an idea whose time has come ... but in my view there will be no sustainable traction unless there is a system of metrics that supports what the exchange wants to do. There are layers of metrics associated with the money profit capitalist market system that drive the capital market exchanges, but the equivalent for the social impact dimension of economic activity has not yet emerged. I believe such metrics are vital and should be something of a priority in the economic system reform that is needed urgently now.
