Deep Democratization of Capital

with The Boston Ujima Project

 

A core principle of Transform Finance's work is placing communities at the center of design, governance, and ownership of finance decisions that affect them. 

The Boston Ujima Project is pioneering this principle on several fronts. As the first democratic investment fund in the country, Ujima represents a multi-stakeholder initiative of community members, community organizers, investors, business owners, and entrepreneurs that takes a bottom-up approach to private capital allocations. Read Morgan Simon's interview with the founders here.

In this webinar, Nia Evans of the Boston Ujima Project and Aaron Tanaka of the Center for Economic Democracy will discuss the genesis of the Ujima Project and the rationale for their multi-stakeholder, economic democracy approach to capital, and share details on their new fund. Afterwards, Jed Emerson of Blended Value will help us frame the Ujima Project in the context of the broader purpose of capital. 

We invite you to join us on Wednesday, January 16, 2019 at 10:00 AM Pacific, 1:00 PM Eastern for this 90 minute webinar via Webex.
