Stephen M. Kellen Lecture

The Impact Revolution

Under pressure from consumers, talent, and investors, capitalist economies are shifting from risk-return to what venture capitalist and philanthropist Sir Ronald Cohen terms “risk-return-impact.” This momentous change is already causing disruption to long-established models in investment and business. In this talk, Cohen argues that Germany’s powerful corporate sector has a real opportunity to lead the way in reshaping corporate business models, to deliver and measure impacts so they bring solutions to today’s great environmental and social challenges. Cohen will explore these changes and share his vision for the future.
