Impact Investing 101: What’s In It For Me?
September 25 @ 11:45 am - 1:00 pm$10.00
Impact Investing is having a moment. Earlier this year the Heart & Stroke Foundation of Canada launched a social impact bond to prevent hypertension, and increasingly we are hearing about Community Foundations across the country investing their community funding with a focus on social and financial return. While this all sounds good – what does it actually mean? How does Impact Investing work?
Social Venture Partners Waterloo Region, in partnership with BDO Canada, is pleased to offer a noonhour lunch and learn to find out! Facilitated by Tim Jackson, former Lead Executive of MaRS Centre for Impact Investing, this workshop will provide you with a foundational understanding of impact investing and resources for further engagement.
Whether you work with a nonprofit, a funder, or are an investor yourself, you’ll have the opportunity to hear about what’s happening in our Region, and connect with others who are interested in this growing movement!
