Social Finance, Inc. (with Shawn Cole, Rawia Sami Abdel Samad and Matthew John Berner), Harvard Business School Case 212-055

  • Social Finance attempts to design and launch a complex new financial instrument (the pay-for-success bond) that will entice private capital to invest in social service provision.
