Lisette Schuitemaker is an author on personal and spiritual development. She previously served as Chair of the Board of Social Venture Network Europe, the Findhorn Foundation and the Center for Human Emergence NL. A friend of Pymwymic since its inception, she invests in impact through several funds, as well as directly in social enterprises that centre systems-change and education.
Marilou van Golstein Brouwers is an impact investment pioneer, with over 30 years experience in developing global impact investment funds. Marilou was Chair of the Management Board of Triodos Investment Management, and member of the Board of Directors of the GIIN (Global Impact Investing Network) until 2019. An important partner to Pymwymic for many years, she recently set up her own advisory company which she runs next to her continuing non-executive work.
In this introductory interview, Lisette and Marilou speak about impact investing and the project they have embarked on together: a book titled ‘The Inner Life of Money’. The idea for the book comes from one of Pym’s co-founders, the late Margaret McGovern, who sought to understand what keeps people from putting their money behind their ideals. As part of their research to answer this question, Marilou and Lisette have compiled an in-depth survey, gathering information from people of all ages, worldwide.
