Achieving the SDGs through social finance

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.

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 Wednesday 28th of August from 8am – 9.30am to learn more in this Virtual Workshop. 

LIMITED SPACES! Note we can host a maximum of 20 guests at this virtual workshop, so we recommend reserving your spot today!

MEMBER DISCOUNT: We have 3 seats available for members at a discounted price of $10. Impact Hub Members of either Virtual Starter, Virtual Citizen or Virtual Global will be sent the code via email – so keep a look out for this!
