The Good Capital Project (a SOCAP Initiative), in partnership with ImpactAlpha, is proud to announce the launch of a new conference series for investors and advisers to gain practical advice and learn leading impact investment strategies across asset classes.
Impact investing can be daunting and confusing, this series welcomes practitioners of all levels, from curious newcomers to established experts, to learn how to broaden the community and improve the world while meeting your or your client’s goals.
Good Capital Project and ImpactAlpha’s Total Impact conference is for RIAs, family offices, and investors who are interested in aligning their portfolios with their social values. We’re bringing together impact investing experts, academics, and development leaders to teach you how to build total impact portfolios. We believe the financial services industry has the tools to solve some of the world’s biggest challenges and we’d like to invite you to join us.
Getting Accelerated: Which social enterprise accelerator is right for you, and how to make your application standout!
There are a growing number of social enterprise accelerators, pre-accelerators, and startup bootcamps – and there is increasing competition to get into them all. In this webinar for scale-ready social enterprises, we will get to hear from social enterprise leaders, as well as directly from accelerator directors to help you decide on which accelerators are best for your organization, and how to make your application standout!
This will be most useful for social enterprises already in operation and in the early stages of scaling.
This program offers a distinctive convergence of high-level discourse between innovative thought leaders and practice experts, including allocators, academics and investors, all of whom are helping to shape the emergence of impact investing. A step away from other commercially organized conferences, Skytop Strategies and its lead supporter—Rockefeller Capital Management—are convening stakeholders seeking to unpack a timely and relevant discussion on what to expect to see in the months and years ahead, as impact investing continues to gain the attention of investors seeking transformational change through the strategic deployment of capital.
Join us for this full day discussion when we will deliberate on best practices in impact investing, and how they generate measurable social, environmental and economic results through bridging the gap between purpose and profit.
This virtual community meeting is meant to bring together people across the world who are engaging with and using financial health as part of their work. Building on CFI’s past conversations, participants in the conversation will share lessons learned and insights gained. This meeting will start by looking at the determinants of financial health on a national level, building on some research coming soon from a public-private research partnership in Latin America.
The 10th ICT4D Conference brings together public, private and civil society organizations from across the humanitarian and international development community. Participants share how they’ve used innovations in technology to increase the impact of their work. Highly interactive and hands-on, the conference attracts a diverse audience of technical advisors, executives, and others who offer a range of practical insights on applying technology to development, humanitarian, and conservation challenges.
Entrepreneurs think that the most important element for attracting investments is the idea – it’s not. For early-stage investments, the emphasis is on the strength of the entrepreneurs. Are they smart, tenacious, bright, and able to recognize opportunities and pivot when necessary?
Entrepreneurs, capacity providers, and investors are invited to join NESsT to learn about the ways our online Talent Tool can be used in the due diligence process to better understand an entrepreneur and their ability to successfully run an enteprise.
In 2017, NESsT publicly launched the Idea2Entrepreneur Talent Tool, a tool that we developed from our experience training over 13,000 entrepreneurs. We’ve used it in six of our open windows in five countries to select the social enterprises that enter our portfolio.
The Center offers a professional certificate program designed for practitioners in non-governmental organizations (NGOs), government, industry, and military who are active participants in humanitarian operations including disaster response, long term development and public health operations. The courses are developed for practitioners seeking to build skills to improve decision making in preparedness, response operations planning, and system design. Courses include many interactive components, such as case studies and games, which help professionals in the health and humanitarian sectors to link the challenges and decision-making tradeoffs they face in practice with the systematic approaches, tools, and techniques presented.
