Introduction to Social Investment with Jem Stein (Daring Capital)

26 March | 10:00 am 11:30 am

Join us for an engaging and accessible introductory course tailored to budding social entrepreneurs eager to navigate the world of social investment. In this session, we’ll demystify the landscape, covering three fundamental types of social investment: debt, equity, and quasi-equity.

Do you know your dilution preferences from your fixed charges?

Do you know the difference between RPA and quasi-equity?*

Whether you’re considering raising funds for your venture or simply curious about the possibilities, this course offers practical insights and real-world examples to get you started. We will start with a few slides to set the context, with the remainder of the session being interactive with the opportunity to ask questions.

Please note this session is only relevant to organisations with a traded income as a core part of their model.

Participants will:

  1. Better understand whether social investment is right for their organisation.
  2. Become aware of the different types of social investment.

My name is I’m Jem Stein and I will be your guide. I’ve been around social enterprises for over a decade first as founder of a social enterprise called The Bike Project and now as an investor with Daring Capital. Through Daring, I help founders raise funds from social investors.

*that one’s a trick question: they are the same thing!
