"Impact investing in practice": Reverse Pitching Session 4 (in English)


"Impact investing in practice": Reverse Pitching Session 4 (in English)

Tested successfully for the first time in 2019, EBN and EVPA organised again their “Reverse Pitching” initiative. Investors for Impact present their investment strategies and impact assessment frameworks to EU|BICs, in order to help them better prepare entrepreneurs to access new funding opportunities.

The first three webinars of the series had a national focus while this session brought a European perspective and happened in English. We were very happy to have two guest speakers for this session:

  • Deirdre Mortell from Rethink Ireland – Our Social Innovation Fund
  • Felix Ferstl from Ananda Impact Ventures


  • 12:00 – 12:05: Introduction by Kristian Mancinone (ART-ER)
  • 12:05 – 12:25: Presentation by Deirdre Mortell (Rethink Ireland – Our Social Innovation Fund)
  • 12:25 – 12:45: Presentation by Felix Ferstl (Ananda Impact Ventures)
  • 12:45 – 12:55: Q&A with both speakers
  • 12:55 – 13:00: Conclusion and final word
