New EVPA Research on Impact Strategies: apply to be an Expert!

EVPA is launching a new research initiative on Impact Strategies

An impact strategy represents the way in which a venture philanthropy/social investment organisation (VP/SI organisation) codifies its own VP/SI activities, both in terms of its position towards impact and vis-à-vis its financial return objectives. Through this research we want to develop a detailed and nuanced spectrum of strategies.

We believe that the first step to build an impact strategy is to start defining the level of commitment of a VP/SI organisation towards the achievement of societal impact. The centrality of social impact is a pre-condition for any social impact investment strategy. However, not all VP/SI organisations give the same relevance to societal impact and – as a result – not all VP/SI organisations have the same risk/return profile when it comes to societal impact.

EVPA’s Knowledge Centre is working on an initial framework within which to conduct the research and the role of the Expert Group would be to work together (facilitated by EVPA) on further developing the framework and providing multiple case studies to illustrate each aspect.

If you would like to get more information on the research and the timeline foreseen, please click here.

You can apply to join the Expert Group by 12 February by submitting your expression of interest to Alessia Gianoncelli (agianoncelli@evpa.eu.com). Before applying please check the terms of engagement here.

The final list of experts will be communicated on 23 February.
