New Frontiers of Philanthropy

This chapter focuses on the crucial demand side of the emerging social-impact investment market, the issue of “deal flow,” or limited availability of social-purpose organizations of various types with the scale and sophistication to access complex social-impact investment resources either on their own or with the assistance of a variety of intermediaries. The chapter outlines the structure and dynamics of the demand side of the social-impact investment market, critiques some of the recent attempts to assess demand, suggests how to quantify the scope and trajectories of this side of the market, and reflects on key issues and barriers going forward.

Keywords:   deal flow, social finance, social-impact investing, social entrepreneurship, quasi-equity, capacity-building, financial literacy, social enterprise, development finance, microfinance
