Activating Impact Investors at Scale to Achieve the SDGs

According to the United Nations, “between $3.3-4.5 trillion per year needs to be mobilized if we hope to achieve the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development”. Much of that funding needs to go to efficiently capitalizing impactful, entrepreneurial business solutions. There are growing numbers of entrepreneurship centers and accelerators devoted to impact entrepreneurship, yet there are relatively few centers and accelerators focused on nurturing and activating new impact investors.

How do we create an effective infrastructure to welcome and activate the thousands of high-net-worth individuals, hundred thousand foundations, four thousand family offices, and thousands of corporations that are primed to become impact investors? What are the most efficient and effective ways to engage, educate, and activate them?

In this live fireside chat and audience Q&A, Impact Entrepreneur’s Laurie Lane-Zucker welcomes Stephanie Gripne, founder and CEO of the Impact Finance Center, for a discussion of how to activate impact investors at scale and best direct their capital to early-stage impact enterprises.
