Catalytic Capital: An Essential Impact Driver

In a new blog for Mission Investors Exchange (MIE), C3’s Urmi Sengupta takes a look at how and why philanthropic investors use catalytic capital to drive progress on key impact objectives.

“While many kinds of investors can participate in catalytic capital transactions, foundations and family offices are especially well-positioned to play an outsized role,” she writes. “This comes from their high degree of flexibility relative to many other types of investors, as well as their desire, if not mandate, to take an ‘impact first’ approach.” Urmi is a senior program officer at the MacArthur Foundation and chair of the project advisory board for C3 Grantmaking.
