Event description

Description

Next Wave Foundation and Pipeline Angels invite you to join other active impact investors for an opportunity to network with like-minded funders and map out the landscape of impact investing from pre-seed funding through later stage venture capital.

We are building an entrepreneur friendly directory of funders in this space that will allow us to map out impact funders by the stage of the companies they invest in, as well as by sector, geography, gender lens, and more.

In addition to helping investors and funders build relationships across the ecosystem, this collaborative effort will allow entrepreneurs to be more efficient in their search for capital, which means they can spend more time on scaling their companies and their impact. We hope that will you join us!

Primary goals/outcomes:

Overall we want to build stronger relationships across the impact investing landscape, identify synergies and opportunities for collaboration, as well as support promising impact ventures through their growth stages. Specifics include:

1) Meet and learn more about different investors/funders by sector/geography/stage/other screens

2) Start building stronger relationships across funding landscape

3) Build shared understanding of language for impact investing and impact metrics

4) End meeting with solid progress on developing the impact landscape map that has been contributed to by everyone in the room.

5) Present findings at ACA summit the following day

Invited guests and speakers include leaders from many of the impact investors in this effort including: Next Wave Impact Fund, Pipeline Angels, Investors Circle, Impact Assets, Cornerstone Capital, iAngels, Village Capital, Rethink Impact, Impact Engine, Techstars, Halcyon Accelerator, Closed Loop Ventures, Bain Capital’s Double Bottom Line, Breakout Labs, Reach Capital, Case Foundation, Omidyar, and more. Please no more than two leaders from each organization.

If you are unable to attend the mapping session, please return a form so we can include you in the impact map. https://goo.gl/forms/z0k73OXHE0cm0mKM2. Completed forms due no later than March 31st, 2018

We hope you can join us in Boston! Thank you!
