Video: Social Finance Best Practices: Annie Jamieson
On April 8 2011, MaRS hosted nine practitioners of social finance from across the spectrum to speak about the best (and worst) practices in social finance. Hear personal stories and interesting examples from Canada’s emerging social finance marketplace. With five minutes each and drawing on their experience and research, these regular contributors to SocialFinance.ca highlighted successful and/or poor social finance practices. A question-and-answer period rounded out the session.
Anne Jamieson is the Senior Program Manager of the Toronto Enterprise Fund, and responsible for sector-building, agency communication, portfolio management, and liaison with funding partners. She spoke about the importance of perseverance, using the example of Furniture Link: “Don’t run away when things get tough.” She also shared the experience of bringing on an industry expert who was not well versed with the values of social enterprise, and described the importance of education.
We invite you to share your thoughts about this video below. What is your key takeaway from Anne’s message,and how does it inform your work?
