Webinar: The Charter of Investors for Impact: What do we stand for?

During its 15th Annual Conference in The Hague, EVPA launched the Charter of investors for impact. With the Charter, EVPA builds on last year’s research on impact strategies to define who investors for impact are exactly and what drives them. This Charter also serves as a basis to communicate to a broader audience the DNA of investors for impact and enhance the dissemination of the tools and practices of venture philanthropy.

On the 29th of January, EVPA hosted a webinar to dive into the content of the Charter and understand the main features of investing for impact. During this webinar, EVPA showed a new and interactive version of the Charter, and three speakers with an extensive knowledge on investing for impact presented the principles of the Charter and how they are endorsed in practice. Participants had the opportunity to take part to the discussion and ask questions to the speakers.
