10月24日, 由北京师范大学社会发展与公共政策学院与宜信公司联合主办的“中国公益金融创新计划(CISF)圆桌会议”启动圆桌会在北师大图书馆第一会议室隆重揭幕,这也是奠定CISF工作重心与课题方向、提纲挈领的一次商讨,在场三十余位来自金融、政府、公益三大领域资深嘉宾分享真知灼见,讨论深刻而发人深省。 此次圆桌会邀请了亚洲公益创投网络主席、欧洲公益风投协会(EVPA)创始主席兼名誉总裁Doug Miller(杜明乐);亚洲公益创投网络(AVPN)执行副主席Andrew Muirhead(安德明)。 这两位全球知名的资深投资人为大家介绍了EVPA、AVPN作为网络支持型组织,如何参与推动公益投资领域10年中在欧洲扩大30倍,如何在亚洲地区培育这一领域蓬勃成长,并将通过与CISF的战略合作,参与对中国公益金融领域的扶植。 两位专家分享了公益金融受到公众、市场和政府欢迎的全球趋势,公益金融在现实中的践行路径和实施经验,与来自金融、政府、公益三大领域的嘉宾进行了热烈的讨论,全场亮点不断、笑声连连。 吸收国际经验、联系我国实践,公益金融是一个既需要交叉连接、创新思维,也需要充沛资源投入,并有严苛实施门槛的领域。CISF圆桌会,致力于提供平等、透明、交互的跨界平台,现场嘉宾都是带着问题前来的先行者、思考者,通过圆桌讨论的形式深入探讨,互通有无、灵感迭出。
