On Impact Investing and Social Justice - A Conversation with Eleni D. Janis

Join me in today’s conversation with Eleni Janis, she is the managing partner and CIO of Equivico which is a female owned investment firm in New York. In our discussion, Eleni shares her thoughts and experiences around inequality and how the power of our curiosity and questions can make a difference in how systems are implemented over time.

She has a personal passion for big change and believes that the best way to create equality is to increase access to capital, improve education and health care outcomes. Through the mission of Equivico Eleni and the organisation have helped to create a bridge between investors and small businesses who are in need of financial capital without bias.
