Steve Goldberg is an American independent social investment advisor, consultant, author, and speaker at Caffeinated Capital, LLC, based in Boston, Massachusetts. His practice focuses on developing "scale finance" transactions to bring evidence-based social innovations to at least 20% of the eligible population within a decade. In 2011-2012, he was Managing Director and General Counsel at Social Finance US, where he led government relations and nonprofit partnership efforts for the development of Social Impact Bonds.
Prior to working in the social sector, Steve spent 30 years in government, law, and business. He received a J.D., magna cum laude, from Boston College Law School, an M.A. in economics from Northwestern University, and a B.A. magna cum laude in ecoomics from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst.
Instead of throwing the baby out with the bathwater, we should take greater care to put our precious infants in the right tubs, says Steve Goldberg, arguing that we should be more selective about what to fund through social impact bonds.
