Report Released Today with The Boston Consulting Group.
We often conduct research with our partner organisations at YSB and are happy to announce this report today in collaboration with the Boston Consulting Group. The report looks into how venture philanthropists often measure generic metrics such as how many lives their investments affect. This kind of data provides little insight into a much more important question: How have people’s lives improved? By focusing on overly simplistic metrics, VPs are missing an opportunity to add enormous value for social businesses. The report was written by a panel of experts from both BCG and Yunus Social Business; Frauke Uekermann, Luca Fratesi, Karen Hitschke, Bastian Müller, and Douglas Beal.
