Event Details

Raising Capital for Social Ventures

Sponsored by:

Sonen Capital

Financing the development and growth of a start-up is a challenge that every entrepreneur faces. For social ventures, those same challenges are often further complicated by the dual purpose to create profit and social impact. Today, the options and innovations for raising impact-oriented capital are growing. Innovative approaches -- from impact investing funds to social impact bonds to crowd funding -- are developing quickly. Julia Sze, Managing Director of Sonen Capital, will share her perspective on impact investing and discuss creative and effective approaches for social enterprises to raise capital. Drawing on her experience, Julia will provide lessons and insights for entrepreneurs looking for support for a social venture. In addition, Brahm Ahmadi, Co-founder and CEO of People's Community Market in Oakland, will also share his perspective as a local entrepreneur raising impact capital from retail investors. Whether you're an entrepreneur with an early-stage idea or a social enterprise ready to scale, come learn from Julia and Brahm about how to be most successful in attracting impact-oriented capital.
