Sustainable solutions can be financed by traditional and innovative capital structures, whether a business, civil society NGO, or government. Technological innovations, new platforms, and online communities empower organizations seeking capital to connect with a wider reach of investors, at lower cost and customized engagement. This course focuses on the building blocks of financing – known as the “capital stack”—to fund the operations, expansion, and impact of entities across the business, social, and government sectors; and the technologies that enable new securities (e.g. social impact bond), structures, and sources of capital. Students will learn how to think and act like a chief financial officer to issue securities (equity, debt, convertible, revenue-based securities) and evaluate sample “term sheets.” In addition, students will learn about tech-enabled innovations (e.g. crowd-funding, crypto-currencies, blockchain) in financial systems, processes, products, and providers.
