Who Should Allocate Capital?

Irma Olguin, Jr., Bitwise Industries
and Morgan Simon, Candide Group
In conversation with: Chuck Eesley, Stanford University

Morgan Simon, founding partner of Candide Group, explains that systemic change is needed not only with regard to who has access to capital, but also with regard to who gets to allocate capital. She encourages impact investors to value the lived experiences of the people who will be affected by an investment, and to find ways that a wider community of individuals can influence funding decisions. Irma Olguin Jr., CEO and co-founder of Bitwise Industries, adds that she hopes to see deeper conversations that reshape how investors view who deserves money.
