The 3rd Annual Impact Investing Collaboratory is convening the leading investors and entrepreneurs in the LOHAS sector. While staying focused on the core of the LOHAS space, we also integrate wisdom from leaders in adjacent fields who share lessons from the trenches. You will help solve the needs and challenges — and celebrate the hard-earned victories — of the people who are building these emerging sectors of our economy. You will learn about investing strategies (and the pitfalls therein). You will meet folks who invest in companies before you’re comfortable, and after you’re able. You will share the unique world-view of several of the most promising entrepreneurs in our community. Of any event this year, this unique and interactive program will provide you with direct impact on your startup practices, business acumen, and investing skills.
Who Should Attend?
1. Sophisticated, experienced investors who seek access to quality investment opportunities, lessons from the trenches, and discussion about how to integrate impact in all asset classes.
2. Aspiring and passive investors who seek education in due diligence on impact investments, clarity in post-investment expectations, and review of an active investor’s portfolio.
3. Qualified, active entrepreneurs who seek dialog about real-world fund-raising experiences, help in becoming investment-savvy, and connections with like-minded investors.
4. Experienced, connected experts who seek wisdom in advising clients, insight into the latest investment activity, and satisfaction in helping entrepreneurs.
