We’re really excited to be participating in the inaugural Canadian Global Impact Investing Group event: Making an Impact through Social Finance. The event will bring together organizations working to deploy capital to transform lives, create a world beyond poverty, fund social ventures and support sustainable development.
One of our knowledge/education team member, Jocelyn Ling, will be presenting on behalf of Vancouver for Acumen Fund — sharing the acumen model (both on a global and chapter level) to the impact investing community in Vancouver. The event will be held on Wednesday, Nov 23rd from 6:30pm — 9pm at SFU’s Segal Graduate School of Business in downtown Vancouver. You can check out more details about the event here.
Three other organizations will also be presenting at the event: Vancity, Global Catalyst Initiative and Opportunity International Canada. Also, at the event, they will be giving away door prizes: Impact investing: Transforming How We make Money While Making a Difference – Jed Emerson, Antony Bugg-Levine and Banker to the Poor – Muhammad Yunus.
Looking forward to connecting with other fellow impact investing/social enterprise champions!
