In the third article of our “Innovation in Homes” series, Karen Ng, Investment Manager at Big Society Capital, has asked entrepreneurs from The Young Foundation’s Reimagining Rent programme to share their learnings from building ventures to improve the Private Rented Sector (PRS). If you are interested about innovations within PRS, you can also read Karen's previous interview with Nationwide Foundation here.
Big Society Capital is actively looking for partners to co-develop investment solutions to provide homes for people in need.
