Manifesto for a Moral Revolution by Jacqueline Novogratz - Livestreamed Event
7:30pm - 8:30pm
Jacqueline Novogratz is the founder and CEO of Acumen, a pioneering non-profit venture capital fund that uses business strategies to solve problems of poverty around the world.
Since 2001, Acumen and its investments have brought critical goods and services to hundreds of millions of low-income people worldwide. In her latest book Manifesto for a Moral Revolution, Novogratz outlines the essential leadership practices needed for anyone who seeks to leave this world better than they found it.
Novogratz is also the author of the New York Times bestseller, The Blue Sweater, which looks at traditional practices of charity and proposes a form of philanthropic investment she calls “patient capital”.
