In the year 2019, The Spindle organised a number of sessions on how different organisations in the field are working with innovative ways of financing development. Each session touched upon on one or two innovative financing instruments that are currently being explored, experimented or implemented. Together with an active community of NGOs, consultants, journalists and other (private) actors working on this topic, we explored a multitude of instruments to realise effective and efficient ways of financing development. We treated, for example, Social Franchising, Unconditional Cash Transfers, Impact Investment and Social Impact Bonds.

All this knowledge has been bundled in our newest publication: Innovative financing instruments for development, popping up like daisies.
Come and celebrate with us its official launch on the 27th of January!
During the event, we speak with Menno Bosma and Hans van de Veen, the authors of the publication. They will be interviewed so we can hear their vision on the project. What lessons do they’ve learned, and which eyeopeners did they experience? Also, John Belt, Global Technical Advisor on Inclusive Value Chains at SNV and Senior Economist at KIT Royal Tropical Institue will share his experiences with innovative financing for NGOs. Maarten Mulder from Han Valk Fundraising Consultancy & Interim Management will discuss trends and developments on finance instruments. Finally, Bart Romijn, director of Partos, will briefly contextualise the publication before receiving it officially and distributing it to all participants.
Unfortunately there are no more spots available. Keep a close watch on our website for the coming report of the session.
