NESsT was recently involved in one of the first reports promoting intelligent failure within the venture philanthropy and social investment sector. Would you like to learn from our mistakes?
If so, have a look at the recently published European Venture Philanthropy Association (EVPA) report on failures, which we contributed our learnings to.
Collecting lessons from 12 EVPA member organizations and years of venture philanthropy and social investment practice, Learning from Failures in Venture Philanthropy and Social Investment looks at why certain strategies and investments failed. It outlines concrete advice and tips for mitigating risk in a co-investment strategy, the do’s and don’ts of deal screening, what to focus on with your non-financial support and more.
The report can be downloaded free of charge on here on the EVPA website.
