Dollars for Change: How Innovative Impact Funds are Fostering Social Impact

NON-GSU Students should register on Eventbrite.

Changing the fortune of the world can’t be done in a snap. Come and learn how practitioners are putting dollars behind their values and finding innovative community-based approaches to support social entrepreneurs.

The Georgia State University Entrepreneurship & Innovation Institute (ENI) and Georgia Social Impact Collaborative bring together a panel of four local luminaries in the social impact space who are creating new and innovative funding models for social impact.

Our panelists will ponder and respond to these questions:

  • How is social impact and entrepreneurship nurtured and deployed in Georgia?
  • How can impact funds foster social impact in Georgia?
  • Where are the current opportunities for relationship-building and funding in Georgia?

The audience will leave inspired and equipped with concrete tips and connections to take their social impact work forward.

The event is free and all are welcome!
