Debate: Does capacity-building support distort the market?
Aliana Pineiro, Global Impact Investing Network
Capacity-building support, also known as non-financial support or technical assistance, strengthens a business’ operations, impact, or strategy. According to a GIIN study to be released in September 2017, this support is often used by early- and growth-stage impact investors to assist businesses in the areas of human resources, impact, and financial management, among others. Does this support distort the market by providing an unsustainable advantage to weak businesses? Or, does it support innovative businesses to deliver solutions in new markets? The GIIN will moderate this panel of impact investors as they debate these questions.
