A Belgian Première: A Social Impact Bond To Tackle Unemployment In Brussels

The first Belgian Social Impact Bond (and one of the first on the European continent) has been officially launched. This achievement was reached in a record timing of less than a year, by an informal team of professionals including EVPA member Kois Invest.
