Investing for Impact: Disruption Beyond Digital – Hosted by Capricorn

Back to schedule

Session Description

Technology is the greatest revolutionary force for change on earth. From the printing press to renewable energy to artificial intelligence, the development and commercialization of new technologies has for centuries driven transformative business, social, and environmental impact at scale. Beyond digital disruptions, new industrial technologies and scientific breakthroughs are radically improving lives and producing long-term economic value – more so in this century than ever before in history. The exponential pace of change and scale of value creation is causing investment managers to rethink their strategies. The narrative among large asset managers – from philanthropies, retirement systems, universities, and the Fortune 500 – is evolving from the risks of such investments to the risks of not leveraging them. Join leading forces investing in technology for impact to assess the emerging imperatives of this undeniable trend.
