About this Event
If you're an impact-driven startup trying to adapt yourself to the new global reality while fundraising, this one is for you.

If the world is changing, how are investors reacting and what motivates them to support the world's most pressing issues? Who are the startups leading with agility, what do they have in common, and what's their unique approach to innovation?

We brought together a powerful panel of those who lead with investors and startups every day to share their experiences and insights.

  • What motivates impact investors and what are they looking for?
  • What are the purpose driven-innovation trends we're seeing from both investors & startups after the covid-19 outbreak?
  • What do the next years look like for the startup's world?
  • How to find the right investment profile for your startup.
