Achieving the SDGs through Social Finance
13 August 2019 - Impact Hub

Are you looking at ways social finance and impact investing can support the achievement of the SDGs? Curious how SDGs, social finance, patient capital and technology blend together?

Impact Hub Waikato has invited Charles Beaudry & Natalie St Pierre, both Co-Founders of Impact Hub Montreal, to offer a global perspective on how we can work collaboratively on these complex issues. We will discuss pre-seed patient capital as a solution to address gap faced by social innovators.

Ever wonder why there is very limited pre-seed patient capital available to social innovators?

Let’s talk about failure. The Failure Institute reports that only 17% of social enterprises remain in operation after 3 years. Failure to integrate sustainable business models related to the SDGs will equate to lost economic opportunities worth up to US$12 trillion by 2030.

Okay enough about failure – let’s talk SOLUTIONS! There are some Impact Hubs developing scalable solutions to address this issue. How can we in the Waikato learn from their experience?

Join us on the 28th of August from 8am – 9am to learn more in this Virtual Workshop. Note there are LIMITED SPACES for this workshop so please CLICK HERE TO REGISTER YOUR SPACE!
