September 10, 2009

Sept 10, 2009 - Last week, Lemelson Foundation Executive Director Julia Novy-Hildesley joined a panel discussion at the SOCAP09 annual Social Capital Markets conference series.

In advance of the panel – which featured representatives from the Aspen Network of Development Entrepreneurs (ANDE) and the Center for Global Development talking about investing in small and medium enterprises in developing countries – SOCAP published a Q&A with Novy-Hildesley on their website.

"We see ourselves as a high risk, early stage investor, because we are all about invention. We are willing to prove out high potential technologies and take risks on early stage companies."

– Julia Novy-Hildesley, Lemelson Foundation
