Investing in an Asymmetric World: UNICEF Venture Fund and the Financing of Equity, Chris Fabian. Founder & Lead of UNICEF Ventures, Office of Innovation, UNICEF

683 views

Published on

UNICEF's Venture Fund is the first financial vehicle of its kind in the United Nations—allowing for $50-100K investments in open source technology companies in the countries where UNICEF works. Chris Fabian will discuss the importance of new approaches to solving the world's most pressing problems, and how creating prototypes and provocations to industry has helped situate UNICEF as a leader in identifying, financing, and scaling solutions that have never before been realized. More on the award-winning UNICEF Office of Innovation here: www.unicefstories.org and www.unicefinnovationfund.org.
