WELCOME TO OUR CONNECTUP! MN SUMMIT

INVESTOR BRIEFING

 

LIMITED SEATING AVAILABLE! RSVP REQUIRED!

INVESTORS ONLY

 

ConnectUP! MN Investor Briefings is a community for investors to connect, learn, share, and discuss challenges and direct investment opportunities across asset classes that also help to solve environmental and social challenges.  

On the road to Alpha, philanthropy and investors need to invest in the pipeline.

 To make a positive and sustainable social impact, philanthropists and investors need great ideas that work.

 

Briefing objectives:

  • Meet and mingle with fellow investors.
  • Share your deal-flow challenges and opportunities.
  • Listen to a video recording of entrepreneurs, mainly women and people of color, who share their capital-raising stories.
  • Discuss and advise on next steps for the cohort.

 

The ConnectUP! Award Fund is a first-step into moving your consious capital to direct investments in businesses where its most needed in under-banked/underresourced but vibrant local communities. These are businesses that do not fit within the traditional funds’ criteria but are consistent with the ConnectUP! MN thesis of delivering positive economic, social and environmental impact.

  

ABOUT CONNECTUP! MN

ConnectUP! MN is an innovative and necessary solution to closing the capital demand gap for women, LGBTQ, people of color (POC) and rural entrepreneurs; as well as the ever-growing hunger of impact investors looking for direct investment opportunities.


Y. Elaine Rasmussen, CEO of Social Impact Strategies and Susan Hammel, CEO of Cogent Consulting teamed up to create ConnectUP! This new, innovative program fills one of the gaps identified in our Twin Cities Impact Investing Ecosystem by connecting underserved and underresourced investees with investors that fit their social impact and financial criteria. ConnectUp! MN brings together socially responsible entrepreneurs and impact investors in an interactive way to connect, learn, share, partner and create investment opportunities to foster growth for investors and local entrepreneurs.  


We’ve intentionally designed ConnectUp! MN to do three things:

  • Create an infrastructure and pipeline for connecting investors and investees,
  • Provide opportunities for investment for under-resourced and marginalized communities, and

  • Cultivate peer networks for social entrepreneurs and investors in a supportive and equitable environment.



ConnectUp! disrupts the current ‘race to one’ competition model and puts a cooperative, sustainable model in its place.
