Description

Today’s episode isn’t a fairy tale, but it does feature a knight. Sir Ronald Cohen was one of the very first to bring venture capital to the UK — and he was knighted for his contribution. For Cohen though, the best part of making money through investing wasn’t the money itself, but the good that could be done with it.


Often called the “Father of Social Investment,” Cohen tackles complex problems head on with strategic investments. But his story starts long before earning that moniker; it begins in Egypt when seemingly overnight, his family had to pack their bags and head to Britain.
