Joel Solomon of Renewal Funds is not only a leading impact #investor but also a leading voice for the impact investing movement. Based in Vancouver, British Colombia, his impact #fund approaches $100 million.
Solomon says, “All of us, particularly those involved in the world of #investment and #finance, have something to offer. Together we have the resources to achieve what may be the greatest ethical and economic shift in human history.”
“The call right now is a big one: we need to reinvent capitalism,” he says with no hint of doubt.
Solomon notes that traditional capitalism needs to be changed, “We need to enable and encourage private enterprise to build the new businesses, technologies and industries that will replace our current methods— many of which are unsustainable at best and wantonly destructive at worst.”
Observing that government can’t or won’t solve big social problems, Solomon calls on financiers to lead the way. “It’s hard to overemphasize the critical role that those who move in the world of finance and investment can play right now. Those who provide capital and incentives for innovation have a crucial part to play in addressing climate justice, species extinction and man-made environmental disasters.”
