The objective is to support new ventures and their teams integrate the financial (or private); economic (or social) and distributive (or externality) dimensions of such initiatives. We will use simple examples and group exercises to (1) assess impact of the venture/project and (2) address the informational needs of different audiences/stakeholders in the public and private sectors.  The tools and skills shown could be relevant for roles such as planners, economists, managers, designers, negotiators, entrepreneurs and philanthropists. 

This activity is sponsored by the Department for Urban Studies and Planning and the Legatum Center for Development and Entrepreneurship.
