ionPoverty with Anne-Marie Burgoyne

I thought I’d share Jonathan Lewis’ ionPoverty interview with my friend Anne-Marie Burgoyne.

Anne-Marie’s portfolio of totally incredible social enterprises is a sight to behold: she funds amazing early-stage social entrepreneurs, and over the course of her three year engagement with them she rolls up her sleeves like no one I know, as a Board member and adviser, to help them succeed.

I know the terms “venture philanthropy” and “strategic philanthropy” fell in and out of favor (for good reason), but Anne-Marie’s work reminds me that philanthropic funding can be off the charts in terms of rigor, seriousness, and results-orientation without sacrificing a deep understanding of everything that makes the social sector unique.

This one-minute teaser conversation will give you a taste of the conversation – you can sign up for an all-access pass to ionPoverty for $15 (depending on where you live that’s one or two sandwiches…it’s a good deal).
