RENEW's Tom Scriven was invited to speak to a class of about 30 MBA students at the University of Colorado's Leeds School of Business on March 4. The topic was "Financing Sustainable Change: Cleantech and Impact Investing."

Among topics discussed were the opportunities and challenges facing Ethiopia as its economy grows. Significant investments in infrastructure and a growing middle class in the second most populous country in sub-Saharan Africa present remarkable opportunities for business growth at rates which would be seen as "too good to be true" in most other countries of the world. The conversation also included discussing ways to minimize some of the risks associated with these investments and opportunities to attract more public and private sector funds into investments that have potential for both significant financial and social returns.
