13 WHAT DO I DO IF I AM A BANK OR GOVERNMENT ? Paul Martin - Former PM of Canada The question I would put to you is quite simple – Nov 2007 If we are prepared to use these kinds of (tax / legislative) incentives to enable business entrepreneurs to tap capital markets for the betterment of the economy, why would we not provide similar incentives to social entrepreneurs as they seek to tap capital markets for the betterment of society. Financial experts ought to be developing new cutting edge instruments to make funding available to social entrepreneurs Tax experts ought to be thinking about mechanisms that can support social enterprise in a meaningful way. Legislators should encourage an environment that allows foundations to become more imaginative in support of social enterprise.

14 SUMMARY THE IMPORTANCE OF COLLABORATION AND SCALE To solve the problems of Sanitation on a systemic basis requires: –Governments to change legislation – Tax treatment and Legal structures >> CIC, L3C –Empower the bottom of the Pyramid –Collaboration from the Social sector / NGO s –Foundations / Donors – Leverage - HOW to draw in more Private capital - LEVERAGE THE 100% NOT ALLOCATE 5% –Corporates to engage in for profit for social impact – Banks bringing their skills to bear along the whole Value Chain –Creation / Evolving of Intermediaries to create Collaborative behaviour and Safeguard the Sector
