Micro-equity for sustainable development: Selection, monitoring and exit strategies of micro-angels

Ecological Economics, 2016, vol. 130, issue C, 117-129

Abstract: Sustainable development requires balancing environmental, social and financial concerns. This requires investors to select and monitor entrepreneurs who would balance these triple concerns. At the same time, there has been considerable attention to “small is beautiful” and micro-investors have stepped in to look for such eco-entrepreneurs. To the classical institutional logic of economic returns, they add the logic of social returns as well as the logic of environmental and local safeguards.
