£1.5 million for new Oxford research initiative on private capital owners and impact.
The Skoll Centre for Social Entrepreneurship at Saïd Business School, University of Oxford is launching The Ownership Project 2.0, a new research initiative with £1.5 million founding support from NextWorld Philanthropies. The initiative will develop actionable, research-based insights into how private capital owners can leverage their wealth to address the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
Amidst mounting calls to deploy private capital for positive social and environmental impact, a growing number of family wealth-holders are seeking to use their financial resources to address systemic global challenges. The agility of this unique ownership demographic creates significant potential for catalysing positive change at scale.
