She also shares what the Foundation is doing to address the bottleneck they see in financial intermediaries, so that more funds can be directed into impact investing, to ultimately impact the global SDGs (UN Sustainable Development Goals) through the work of nonprofits, social enterprises, and other social impact organizations.
