The 8th annual Social Finance Forum is a few days away and the event tickets are selling fast! We are excited to present this year’s conference to you as the speakers and content have carefully been curated to cover all aspects of impact investment space.
This year we are doing something new. We are giving you the opportunity to register for one day over a full conference registration. Here is how the two days are planned out.
Day 1: The first day of the conference will include high level discussions around impact investment opportunities and challenges, alongside real-life examples from sectors like energy, healthcare, and education. If those sectors are not of an interest, then you can attend our global stream and hear from big financial institutions, United Nations, or learn about impact investing in emerging markets. We will end the day with a networking reception where you will have the opportunity to network with conference attendees and speakers.
Day 2: The second day of the conference will cover the nuts and bolts of impact investing. Whether you are just entering this industry, or have been active in the impact investment space, there is a session created to suit your needs. We have four different stream so make sure you check out the website for sessions description and list of speakers.
Besides the two full days of programing, we will have space available for you to network with peers. Additionally, Trico Foundation will be giving a $50,000 Social EnterPrize Award, and 20 RBC-sponsored impact entrepreneurs will be flying in from around Canada and you will have the opportunity to meet and greet them.
We look forward to having you join us for two banner days in social finance and impact investing. Once you have registered, we will email you your ticket and keep you posted on Forum news. You will also be able to use our incredibly handy scheduling tool to pre-register for sessions and meet other attendees!
