Welcome to the October edition of Impact Investing with Jay Kelly & Ann Oleson Partners Return on Good. Over the past month, we and many of our colleagues from Investors to CEO’s to Family Offices have spent time connecting with people focused on big opportunities.
From Investor Summits in CA, to Climate Week in NY and The World Culture Festival in DC we reiterate that PEOPLE are the solution to our challenges.
A special shout out to leaders who are creating amazing & and exhilarating tech-driven solutions that focus on big goals: John Sharp, Gordon Winston, Alex von Welczeck, Ken Neumann, and Dr. Lei Lewis. Stay tuned in November for more on those conversations and what is New and Next in Impact Investment.
