Session 2: Impact Fire Talks 2023: Exit Pathways During Economic Downturn: Mission Impossible?

Exit Pathways During Economic Downturn: Mission Impossible?

Exits are one of the key concerns of impact VCs, especially in times of economic downturn. Questions such as “What is my exit strategy in times of recession and how can I ensure that impact stays at the heart of my portfolio ventures?” are typical and pressing. In this session, we seek to answer them by looking at the best practical hacks and strategies in phases of high uncertainty by discussing with experienced peers from different angles: investor, investee and economist. Our speakers Zoé Constantin, Partner at Impact PartnersProf. Rudy Aernoudt, economist and professor at Ghent UniversityWalter Zantinge, Chief Veggi Officer at Wholly Green, as well as Ines Mertens de Wilmars, Impact Investing Lead at EVPA and moderator of this Impact Fire Talk, will make it a lively, interactive and multi-faceted session.  Stay tuned for the registration link announcement to come within short.

Very much like last year, our IMPACT FIRE TALKS 2023 will allow pioneers, movers and shapers to discover or rekindle their fire for impact, challenge the status quo and talk practice. In 2023, our Fire Talks will kick off in June and take place throughout the rest of the year. Enjoy our inspiring virtual sessions that will boost your passion for impact with highly interactive formats, real-life cases and great experts, pioneers and speakers.
