This event is part of the Crowdfunding for impact Series

The objective of this E-Talk is to provide a brief introduction into the growing field of crowdfunding, and present selected use cases and examples to illustrate how crowdfunding platforms can set up different vehicles to achieve greater social impact and work together to foster follow-on investments.

EVPA presented the new research piece “Accelerating the SDGs – The role of Crowdfunding in Investing for Impact”, which is available for free download here.

This webinar displayed how the crowdfunding platform Bolsa Social combines different investment vehicles to achieve greater social impact, and how these vehicles can be complementary with each other.

We were also joined by the European Crowdfunding Network to help share the wider context of this fast growing segment.

The event was the second of a series of EVPA events on Crowdfunding for Impact. Providing our members and practitioners in general with the opportunity to dive deeper into the topic, building knowledge and networks. You can access more info on the full series here.
