“SOCAP11 was a turning point for our company. Thanks to the pre-conference internet portal, we were able to identify potential partners, and complete our capital raise, including SOCAP investors, within 3 months. Beyond this primary objective for our participating in SOCAP, we also met at SOCAP would be customers and are actively pursuing commercial activities in core market.
My overall experience with SOCAP is that it is the single best venue to connect to investors for our company, as potential investors are already pre-screened for their desire to combine financial returns and impact. I believe that SOCAP is playing a critical pioneering role in demonstrating to the mainstream investment community that impact investments can yield market returns in addition to providing measurable impact in selected communities.
As a conference, my experience has been that the audience is of high quality, serious about impact investment, and the multiplicity of themes orchestrated around speakers and panels allows for optimized conference participation.”
