TEDx: “Impact Investing: Making Money More” by Gino Dante Borges, Ph.D.
In his recent TEDx Talk, Gino Borges discusses his personal quest with money and how it can (and should) be synced with personal values. He poses a question that he wishes every investor would ask:
How can I make more money, and, at the same time, make my money more – more impactful, more responsible, more disruptive and more transformative?
