Early Stage Impact Investing

July 20, 2017 @ 6:00 PM

Early-stage impact investments can be a powerful tool for scaling social enterprises that are designed to both make money and a measurable social impact. Though investments in mission-driven startups are risky, they can generate solid financial returns while enabling innovative businesses to address critical social and environmental problems.

While stories abound on how Impact Investing is growing and getting more “mainstream”, early stage impact investments remains quite scarce

Massachusetts has all the right pieces in place – including universities, accelerators, entrepreneurs, VCs, and a diverse ecosystem of organizations and people focused on social impact. What needs to happen to help increase seed/early stage impact investments so we can better support the social enterprises and visionary entrepreneurs championing innovative solutions to our most pressing social challenges?

Join us for a conversation with investors and mission-driven entrepreneurs, followed by small group conversations led by local accelerators working to support and advance innovative startups.
