The Invisible Heart, the first documentary on SIBs, directed and produced by Nadine Pequeneza, is now available to stream online.
The Invisible Heart “tracks the birth of a new financial market, one that promises to solve society’s most complex problems. An unorthodox marriage between capitalism and charity, Social Impact Bonds are an investment product designed to raise private capital to pay for social services. But what impact will for-profit investment in social programs have on society’s most vulnerable people? “
The Government Outcomes Lab interviewed Pequeneza last year. In part 1 they explore her thoughts on the film and what she learned from those she interviewed. In part 2 they share the stories left out and the future of SIBs.
