Deetken Impact on How to Maximize The Benefits of Blended Finance
The UN and the World Economic Forum have identified blended capital as the means to fill the 2.5 trillion gap to meet the SDGs and yet it is still not well understood.
Using capital from public and/or philanthropic sources in a way that increases the private sector investment into sustainable development. It allows organizations with different objectives to invest alongside each other while achieving their individual objectives, whether financial, social, or environmental.
In this episode we will be discussing blended finance models, environmental and gender lens investing, and investments in Latin America and the Caribbean.

“You must analyze what the needs are within the different markets you want to deploy capital and design the blended finance structure to address them.” Fernando Alvardo CEO of Deetken Impact Sustainable Energy
