The Mission Vision | Michael Moe | Ethical Finance 2020

Grow investor Michael Moe, founder & CEO of GSV – Global Silicon Valley – shares his perspectives on the biggest challenges facing the planet and its people, and how we can invest to solve these problems, in this interview with Prosperar Social Finance Managing Partner and UKIFC Advisory Board member Modupe Ladipo. Michael is a respected growth investor, having invested early in companies such as Starbucks. His present focus lies in education, through companies such as Coursera.


Ethical Finance 2020 (EF2020) convened the world’s foremost business, political, civic and social leaders for a virtual summit to network, share, co-develop and shape a fairer, more sustainable financial system. The annual Ethical Finance summit is organised by the Global Ethical Finance Initiative (GEFI), which coordinates a series of programmes to promote finance for positive change.

It is now widely recognised that the financial services sector has a fundamental role to play in delivering universally supported targets such as the Paris Agreement and the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, as well as supporting economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. However, despite its potential, the current financial system can be a cause – rather than a solution – to some of the pressing challenges our planet and its people currently face. Ethical Finance 2020 explored how the finance services can support inclusive economic growth without depleting natural resources or leaving anyone behind.
