It is both a privilege and great learning to sit on the Young Academy Investment Committee. The aims of the Academy are simple:
The impact report provides a useful oversight into the work to date and acts as a good introduction to those who want to know more about social investment as an approach. It also is essential reading for both funders and entrepreneurs on the challenges of moving from an idea to an organisation; and from a product in a few schools to impact at scale.
The learning from the last three years has been substantial and the impact significant. I am looking forward to the next three years!
