Greg Spencer talks about the Paradigm Project, a for-profit business providing healthy, efficient stoves to Africa that drastically reduces a family's consumption of wood and inhalation of smoke and improves their economic stability.

Not only does The Paradigm Project help the poor, it leverages billions of dollars of value in the carbon markets, reduces deforestation, and changes the paradigm faced by many that creating profits from the poor cannot profit for the poor.

  • 12. A Strategy for Scale & Impact
    Reassembling the puzzle rather than reinventing the wheel:
    Deploying efficient cook stoves in the developing world to reduce deforestation, increase economic prosperity and improve health is not new or innovative.
    Mobilizing donors, non-profit organizations and local stakeholders to create social impact in the 3rd world is not new or innovative.
    Generating competitive investor returns through the creation, verification and sale of carbon offsets is not new or innovative.
    Combining these three proven models to generate triple bottom line returns for investors and developing world communities is both new and innovative
  • 13. Paradigm Kenya Performance

  • 14. Paradigm Impact Investing Advantage
    Combination of competitive social and financial returns draws investment capital that would otherwise be directed elsewhere.
    Donor and grant funding is invested alongside private equity capital, with the return going to create further social impact.
    Donors are purchasing project equity on behalf of participating communities, multiplying their gift many times over.
    Projects deliver immediate triple bottom line benefits while generating revenue to scale and sustain impact.
