Breakout I: Funding Social Impact Enterprises: From the Known to the Novel
Investors have several options in terms of both the sources of capital they deploy into social enterprises, as well as the tools they use in structuring the deals all of which help to manage financial return expectations. This roundtable discussion examines the options and allows participants to share what has worked for them- and what hasn't- in funding social impact companies. Presenters: Valerie Red-Horse Mohl, Executive Director, Social Venture Circle and Tony Stayner Board Member of SV2 / Managing Director at Excelsior Impact Fund. Moderator: Lisa Van Dusen, Chief Relationship Officer, SV2
Breakout II: Impact Investing Across The Asset Classes
Investors have a wide variety of choices in terms of impact investments in each of the major asset classes: Equity, Fixed Income, Real Assets, Alternatives, and Cash. Stephanie Cohn Rupp, Cat Berman of CNote and Jase Wilson of Neighborly will provide an overview of options across the classes, as well facilitate a conversation with the participants on how best to identify and evaluate the performance of such investments.
Breakout Panel III: The Social Entrepreneur’s Secret Weapon: Grants, Crowdfunding, and Non Dilutive Financing
There are certain types of funding sources that only social entrepreneurs have access to, including grants, program related investment or low-interest loans. Where can you find these sources of capital, and how do you successfully apply for them? This breakout will explore these options in detail, and you will hear from entrepreneurs who have successfully raised this type of capital.
