On March 1, EVPA released its second annual survey of European venture philanthropy (VP) and social investment (SI). It reveals that the European VP/SI sector continues to evolve rapidly and is becoming more sophisticated in the use of instruments to generate greater societal impact.

Might the data tell us things we don’t want to hear because it doesn’t support or runs counter to our aspirations?
