Building the Next Economy
Oct 8 2012
You’ve probably heard of the “new economy,” which often refers to social media, sharing-based businesses, and sometimes socially responsible businesses. RSF Social Finance is working to build the next economy: one that’s rooted in community, considers everyone’s needs, and restores trust in financial relationships through transactions that are direct, transparent and personal.
Through our innovative investing, lending, and giving programs, RSF provides critical access to capital for path-breaking social enterprises working in Food & Agriculture, Education & the Arts, and Ecological Stewardship. We collaborate with like-minded organizations to create a financial infrastructure that will support the next economy. And we’ve democratized impact investing with our Social Investment Fund (SIF), which allows anyone with a $1,000 minimum investment to participate in building the next economy.
This is incredibly ambitious. We’re asking you to help spread the word as we promote our “building the next economy” stories on our website, Facebook, Twitter (#nexteconomy) and elsewhere. We’re focusing on these points:
- RSF provides critical access to capital for path-breaking social enterprises.
- RSF collaborates with like-minded organizations to create a financial infrastructure for the next economy.
- RSF has democratized impact investing with the Social Investment Fund, which allows anyone with a $1,000 minimum investment to participate in building the next economy. More information on opening an account: here
