Investing for impact in practice: how to build successful investment strategies?

Investing for Impact in Practice webinar and publication 2020 visual linkedin

During this webinar, EVPA presented the "Investing for Impact Toolkit", a hands-on guide not just for practitioners entering the impact ecosystem, but also for those who would like to become more efficient in adopting the principles of the EVPA Charter of Investors for Impact.

This toolkit builds on the EVPA’s report “A Practical Guide to Venture Philanthropy and Social Impact Investment” and includes EVPA’s research pieces and resources.

During the webinar, EVPA will dive into the content of the toolkit, and experienced practitioners will showcase how they apply the principles of the Charter in practice, from the definition of the investment strategy to the investment process and exit. Participants will have the opportunity to take part in the discussion and ask questions to the speakers.

The webinar will take place on 28th October at 15.00-16.30 (CET).
