Webinar series on impact investing dedicated to the Italian market


EVPA EBN webinar series Impact investing from talking to doing 2020

EVPA and EBN invite you to a new webinar series on impact investing dedicated to the Italian market

EVPA and EBN join forces in support of impact-driven, innovative entrepreneurs seeking access to finance. The combined strengths of the two networks and their members working together have the potential to catalyse business innovation support, impact incubation and investing for impact to benefit people and the planet.

The two networks will therefore put in place a series of initiatives aimed at bringing together EU|BICs and investors for impact to better support European entrepreneurs in tackling today societal and environmental challenges with their innovative solutions.

The webinar series (14 September - 26 October)

On 14 September, EBN and EVPA contribute to the opening session of the webinar series “Impact Investing: dal dire al fare” (translation: ‘’Impact Investing: from saying to doing’’) hosted by the Italian EU|BIC AR-TER.

This webinar series of six online sessions will present facts and figures, business models and investment strategies, and actors of the Italian impact investing ecosystem, in conversation with its protagonists and their business support actors.

The opening session: “Presente e futuro dell’impact investing” (in Italian)

14 September from 10:30 to 12:30

During this first session, EBN and EVPA will shed light on the European dimension of the impact investment sector. We will present how Business Support Organisations (BSOs) and impact investors can contribute together to shaping a more inclusive, impact-oriented, sustainable, and environmental-friendly entrepreneurial ecosystem. The two networks specifically aim to mobilise their Italian members to join the initiative and take part in the “Reverse Pitching” sessions of the webinar series.
