Social Stock Exchange



Social stock exchanges are trading platforms that allow social businesses to raise capital by attracting socially conscious investors to put money into niche capital markets. The standard definition of “social business” varies to include any that has a social, environmental or development focus…SSEs represent a new instrument in the international development toolkit, bringing different actors to the fore to achieve common development goals. It is a shift in mindset where the world cares more about the actual outcomes achieved and less about who achieves them.
