Save the date – EVPA site visit

Posted on by EVPA


On 18 September, EVPA member PhiTrust Partenaires is opening its doors to allow a look behind the scenes as part of the EVPA site visit. These members-only events are an excellent opportunity for both newcomers and experienced members in the network to learn from a venture philanthropy organisation and share best practices with peers.

We are delighted that PhiTrust Partenaires has invited us to explain more about its work. PhiTrust Partenaires provides technical and financial support to small to medium sized for-profit companies that create a positive social and environmental impact. It is one vehicle of PhiTrust, which seeks to generate social and environmental impact through investing and supporting both for-profit and not-for-profit organisations. Depending upon each organization – pure models or hybrid ones -, they may finance trough grants, loans, capital.

The site visit will cover various areas of the work of PhiTrust Partenaires and will include a visit to one of their investees, Ecodair. Furthermore, the site visit will be exploring co-investment opportunities throughout Europe, notably given the establishment of the European Social Entrepreneurship Fund.
