TRACK: Infrastructure

California lacks funds for every type of infrastructure – from moving goods to moving information.    With state revenues failing to keep pace with demand, it’s time to consider a broader spectrum of public and private investments.
 
For-benefit organizations can contribute investments to needed infrastructure, leveraging private investment for public good.  The Infrastructure track will focus on current efforts underway in California and identify opportunities and barriers for expanding the for-benefit ecosystem to support the infrastructure needs of the state.
