EVPA, together with the Polish Private Equity and Venture Capital Association, first Polish family office Firlej & Kastory and advisory firm Inspired, invite you to a new webinar series on impact investing for CEE players interested in this topic.

EVPA and its partners join forces to increase the level of understanding of the responsible and social impact investing concepts by combining academic research on the topic and meetings with leading experts and practitioners who share their experience.

Run once a month, an 1-hour webinar in English, will present examples how private equity, venture capital, family offices and funds can engage their capital to support UN Social Development Goals and help to solve pressing social issues while making sustainable profits.

We will present facts, figures, business models and investment strategies supported by case studies from EVPA community of members and other responsible investors. You will learn about existing approaches, challenges and opportunities, to become an agent of change in your company or at your market. Speakers' experience will help to facilitate the conversation between investors and corporates or social-purpose organisations.
