Good Capital Project launch set June 19 in NYC
For almost ten years, the SOCAP community has been working together to build the market at the intersection of money and meaning. We are taking our next giant step in New York City on June 19 and we hope you will seriously consider being a part of this gathering.
This day will convene leaders from the financial, design, academic, non-profit, governmental and impact communities. We want to gather this diverse group of people interested in building a marketplace for good so that we can drive greater collaboration and coordination to accelerate capital flows into purpose-driven investments in every sector.
Save the date: June 19, 2017! You don’t want to miss the launch of the Good Capital Project, a two year initiative. Using a design thinking approach, we will highlight the barriers and find opportunities for impact investors to bring their initiatives to scale through aligning and enlisting cooperation of major Wall Street firms, international development organizations, angel investor networks, foundations, and community investing. Over the duration of this project, we expect the landscape for investing for good to become clear, and new, substantial partnerships, co investments, and projects to arise. We want to enlist all the players to join the effort to solve global challenges with market-based solutions, mixed with philanthropy and public sector financing.
There are lot of initiatives arising that show the time is right for a convergence of all of the sectors and asset classes for an interdisciplinary coordination of unlikely allies to take impact investing to scale, globally and locally in partnership.
We are committed, we are inclusive, and we are dedicated to making this happen. You want to be in the room where it happens. Join us June 19.
