TEDx – Philadelphia – February 14th 2016

Gregory Heller, CEO of American Communities Trust, spent years working on social impact building projects in distressed communities, and wondered why the most important building projects have to struggle for financing “by hook or by crook”. In his talk, he illustrates why the system of private financing in the real estate market holds back critically important projects. He proposes a radical change to support both building for profit and building for good. Heller asserts that our communities and the way they’re built deserve a second look, and we can all be part of the solution.
