The Solutions Collective was formed in 2022 with the aim of collecting insights, testing approaches and crowd sourcing knowledge; we realise we do not have all the answers, nor the monopoly on good ideas.
We are hosting a series of virtual roundtables to help guide the overall approach to social lending across policy, investment, and enterprise. Our aim is to open the floor to a range of topics to invite challenges, encourage the sharing of ideas and ultimately improve the impact our capital can achieve.
We actively encourage participation from interested parties, diverse leaders, those with lived experience or those who can add context by sharing the experience of their constituent members.
We welcome suggestions of speakers and topics for future Solutions Collective events. If you would like to submit a suggestion, or would like to be informed of any upcoming sessions that may be relevant to your work, please complete the form below.
