Politicians, philanthropists, activists and marketers are using film, social media and gaming to build communities, sometimes literally overnight. With the aid of technology, they are telling stories to communicate complex ideas and encouraging a worldwide audience to take action to solve pressing problems. Harnessing the power, popularity and profitability of these tools for social good educates users while raising funds and awareness globally. New media is connecting people with shared interests in inventive ways, activating even small groups to take on big challenges, often engaging celebrities to raise the profile of a cause and give voice to the voiceless. Our panel will discuss the newest ways to make the broadest impact.

  10:45 AM - 11:45 AM

Impact Investing: The Art of the Deal

Dave Chen , CEO, Equilibrium Capital Group
En Lee , Director, Impact Investment Exchange Asia
Sari Miller , CEO, Sarjay, Inc.; Angel Investor, LeapFrog Investments
Eytan Stibbe , Founding Partner, Vital Capital Fund

Betsy Zeidman , Adjunct Fellow, Milken Institute

In recent years, impact investing has grown beyond a niche concept to emerge among mainstream investors and the high net worth community. Some of this stems from the challenge of finding returns among the usual investments in the current economy. World events play a role in heightening interest, as do concerns among the next generation of high net worth investors with the nonfinancial consequences of their ventures. A growing number of deals generate both financial returns and social or environmental impact. But how are the deals actually done? How can you make money and have impact? On this panel, experienced impact investors will delve into examples. What makes these deals work? What should investors realistically expect? What challenges should they anticipate?

Maria Bartiromo , Anchor, CNBC

Philanthropy is changing around the world. From sharpening missions to increasing focus on execution, measurement, outcomes and impact, a social investment revolution is underway. With government budget crises and retrenchment in social services, attention is shifting to the private sector and the innovations and solutions that will drive philanthropy's future. Yet even the most successful philanthropists may lack the financial resources necessary to accomplish audacious goals. How are they tackling the great challenges? How do they leverage their resources to drive change? What are the impediments? Is collaboration achieving results? A group of global change agents who are taking philanthropy to the next level discuss their goals, frustrations and successes, and how they see philanthropy's next phase.

John Rogers Jr. , Founder, Chairman and CEO, Ariel Investments LLC

The members of this panel will change the way you think about social services, turning the traditional "beneficiary" model upside down. They've worked for years to transform the antiquated "givers and takers" paradigm to one of investment and return. Amid the heated rhetoric of the recent election season, these individuals were moved to make their voices heard. You will meet a young leader of peacemaking and social change efforts in schools, a community member working to LIFT up her neighbors while combating poverty in novel ways, and a former inmate who's reducing recidivism by changing the trajectory of current inmates' lives through education. Join us for an eye-opening conversation about creating sustainable programs that empower, inspire and challenge us all.

Effortless Energy has developed a service contract that removes common barriers to residential energy-efficiency adoption through an innovative shared-savings model with homeowners. UpSkill Capital has created a new way to fund vocational training for young adults in India who are trapped in poverty. Join us to learn how these and other future leaders are reshaping the face of impact investing.

Impact Investing in Israel Roundtable

Carl Kaplan , Managing Director, Koret Israel Economic Development Funds
Yaron Neudorfer , CEO, Social Finance Israel
Izzy Tapoohi , President and CEO, Israel Bonds

Davida Lachman-Messer , Senior Fellow, Milken Institute Israel Center

Israel's economic growth has been inadequate and shared unequally. Social cohesion is a key aspect of Israel's national security, yet charitable giving has fallen off and the new government faces growing deficits with insufficient resources to bridge dangerous social and economic gaps. To face these challenges, Israel needs a novel, flexible and efficient system to channel capital into projects with social and regional impact. In this roundtable, we will explore the use of charitable and government funds leveraged by private capital through matching and structured finance to solve pressing social, community and environmental challenges. The focus will be creating double bottom line returns via social investment funds and intermediaries and social impact bonds.

  8:30 AM - 9:45 AM

The Rise of Social Capital Markets: How Will They Change the World?

Russ Ramsey , Chairman and CEO, Ramsey Asset Management
Bobby Turner , Chairman and CEO, Canyon Capital Realty Advisors; Partner, Canyon Partners, LLC

Alexander Friedman , Global Chief Investment Officer, UBS AG

Social capital markets and impact investing are growing globally. From sophisticated equity and debt structures to social impact bonds, credit enhancement vehicles and new investor products, the worlds of investing and philanthropy are connecting. Knowledgeable participants are pursuing opportunities to achieve both financial and social returns, leverage their impact, and spread, scale and sustain promising ventures and programs for change. As governments around the world deal with austerity and traditional philanthropy proves insufficient to address a world of need, can social capital lead the way - providing large scale investment, innovation, business discipline and the potential for system-level solutions? This panel of global thought leaders will discuss where social capital markets have been, how they're changing and what socially conscious investors must understand as they look to the future.

  12:30 PM - 2:30 PM

Lunch Panel: A Cure for What Ails Us: Celebrating the Impact of Science

Nancy Brown , CEO, American Heart Association
Francis Collins , Director, National Institutes of Health
Thomas Frieden , Director, U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
Andrew von Eschenbach , President, Samaritan Health Initiatives Inc.; former Commissioner, U.S. Food and Drug Administration; former Director, National Cancer Institute

Michael Milken , Chairman, Milken Institute

Reasonable people disagree about the specifics of reforming America's complicated system of health care and insurance, but there's no doubt that the best way to cut costs is to prevent people from getting sick in the first place, or to cure them when they fall ill. In an aging nation, nothing would have a greater impact on the federal budget. Bioscience has produced an estimated half of all economic growth for a century by increasing productivity and creating jobs while preventing disease and extending lives. But the best is yet to come: We're at the dawn of a scientific revolution that will reduce care costs and serve as the top driver of economic growth - all while saving, lengthening and improving the quality of lives across the planet. A group of U.S. health leaders joins Institute Chairman Mike Milken for a discussion of the future.
