Have you ever thought to screen your potential investors? Curious about what's happening in the world of impact investing? Join Hanson Bridgett LLP and Social Venture Network for an evening of networking and stimulating conversation as we learn the Do's and Don'ts of finding venture capital within the impact sphere.
