On 11 April 2012, EVPA member le Comptoir de l’Innovation and Social Capital Markets organised the first meeting in Paris dedicated to impact investing, a new segment of finance fighting exclusion and poverty.

It also marked the release of the results of a survey of entrepreneurs, investors and the general public describing the state of impact investing in France and the challenges in the years to come.
