Impact Investing – The Different Actors on Stage
The constant and fast growth of impact investing during the last few years shows the economic significance this field will have in the future. This opens up new possibilities for the development of services where the views and needs of multiple stakeholders are taken into account. It is because of this that, despite the significant challenges ahead for impact investing, the sharing of experiences between the impact investing “pioneers” and the new players is essential to create a strong impact investing field.
Therefore, the seif Impact Investing Congress 2017 offered a platform for the exchange of knowhow and best practices and to enhance collaboration between the different actors on stage. Around 140 participants – business angels, investors, social entrepreneurs as well as representatives of banks, large corporates and public authorities – came together to discuss the current state and future of Impact Investing in Europe and Switzerland in particular. Please refer to our blog for a summary of the learnings for Switzerland. You can also find more information and interviews with the speakers in the Congress Brochure.
seif would like to thank the speakers as well as the participants for this interesting and inspiring day.
