Welcome to my blog and my very personal thoughts.
Big Dog Foundation is not about dogs.
We have set up the Big Dog Foundation site as a homage to Barry Dow – late city headhunter, basketball nut and big dog – to promote good through social enterprise investments.
Philanthropy has a major part to play
I believe that Philanthropy has a major part to play in the development of Social Enterprise investments in the UK.
Not as charity kamikaze investors in projects with little return on investment or any chance of return of investment.
Government backed specialist tax vehicles do exist and we plan to promote those that benefit Philanthropists and Social Enterprises.
We also feel that most Philanthropic giving still reflects a Victorian ethos and does not take into account the ‘modern entrepreneurial’ attitude of new money.
