About this Event
A Financial Times’ survey has shown 96% of US investors expect their portfolio to increase its focus on ESG (Environmental,Social and Corporate Governance) as an investment criteria. Yet, do we really understand the nuances of impact investing?

Impact investing is an art, but also a science to understand how to effectively balance intentional impact while maintaining financial returns. There are a few things that need to be considered before making an impact investment in a startup - what you care about, what your strategy is, and how you measure impact.

In this webinar, we will walk you through how to kickstart your journey as an impact investor and also share a checklist to start building your impact portfolio, with a strategy that is best suited for you.

Investment is always about choice, you are the driver to determine where your capital can create the impact we need for tomorrow’s future. Join us to become the frontrunners!


Agenda :

  • Definition of impact: key terms & concepts
  • Due Diligence on the business and impact assessment
  • What are the questions that you should be asking startups when you invest in impact projects?
  • Practical case analysis
