More Information: The CASE Award for Enterprising Social Innovation (ESI) recognizes outstanding individuals, organizations, or companies whose innovations blend methods from the worlds of business and philanthropy to create sustainable social value that has the potential for large-scale impact. E+Co has earned this award through their tireless efforts to provide lasting solutions to climate change and poverty through clean energy investments in developing countries. As a public purpose investment company, E+Co blends best practices from the philanthropic, venture capital, public and private sectors in an industry long dominated by intransient stakeholders. E+Co's innovative, market-based and flexible "enterprise centered business model" fosters an emphasis on decentralized, renewable energy and energy efficiency, through private sector led businesses, leading to real results that are nothing short of a new energy finance paradigm.
Philip LaRocco, E+Co's Founder and Chief Executive Officer will deliver the inaugural ESI Lecture and accept the CASE Award for Enterprising Social Innovation on behalf of E+Co. Read more about E+Co. This event is free and open to the Duke community and the public. The lecture will be a the Fuqua School's Geneen Auditorium (driving directions). RSVP to this event is appreciated.
