Bryan Dufour's main research interests lie within social impact measurement methods, the way private stakeholders use them and how these methods are progressively being adopted as a policy making tool.
Bryan Dufour has been working with social enterprises since 2011, supporting the development of projects with impact investors and public stakeholders in Europe, Asia and North America. His work has focused mostly on articulating business models, securing funding and on the development of social impact measurement practices.
