Social impact investment has continued to grow at an impressive rate over the past few years, and the steady increase of funding into companies that specifically seek to generate environmentally and socially positive outcomes, as well as financial returns, is testament of a broader sector and societal trend. The private equity and venture capital industry has a strong track-record of driving innovation in high-growth companies and could equally be at the forefront of social innovations in profit-with-purpose companies. However, some perception challenges remain for the impact investing sector in relation to financial returns or investment opportunities.
Join us for this evening event at the RSA where four impact entrepreneurs will talk about their journey in securing funding for their businesses and how they have struck the right balance between delivering returns and a social impact. The event will bring together private equity and venture capital professionals with an interest in discovering the challenges and opportunities of sustainable investing.
