2017 Summit at a Glance...

Activate & Accelerate

The Impact Investment Summit is the peak gathering of Asia Pacific’s impact investment community, convening active investors and those exploring the development of an impact investment strategy. Over the course of three days the Summit is designed to foster knowledge sharing, build relationships and inspire greater commitment to deploying capital for social and environmental impact.

Past Summits

It was a real pleasure to be back with so many leaders of impact investing and social entrepreneurship in Australia for the Impact Investment Summit! What is unique about “the gathering” is the sincere tone of collaboration and partnership that filled each session. If what has happened in other parts of the world holds true for Australia, the only way this field will advance is through deep dialogue and shared exploration of not only ideas and vision, but the actual experience of investing in innovative ventures that seek to optimize impact with appropriate and diverse levels of financial return.
