This week our Exec. Director, Mel Greblo had a wonderfully rich conversation with impact trailblazer, and extraordinary human, Danny Almagor. As many of you will know, Danny leads Small Giants, an impact-driven B Corp, dedicated to building empathy and the new economy. Danny has not only been a seed supporter and constant friend of the Impact Investment Summit, he is a staunch activist, which sometimes means just simply...being. Here are some of the highlights of our conversation...Read More
At the 2017 Impact Investing Hub launched their newly created Live Deals Library, a digital hub where you can find current deals, of which there are presently ten, and a showcase of a further ten deals now closed.
The platform is the only digital hub for live deals listings in Australia, and we were proud to support its development through proceeds from the Summit. We encourage you to consider listing your deal here and support the building of a central one stop shop for both investment deal and investors. The deals are screened by a team behind the scenes at the Hub, and represent a broad offering from opportunities for private investors to institutional scale product.Read More
Jed Emerson's powerful words at SOCAP 2017 still echo around the world, recently re-produced in Dumbo Feather's May 2018 issue, and worthy of appearing in our news as we steer our ship towards our fourth Impact Investment Summit in November this year.
It was brilliant to have Jed here as one of our esteemed speakers and presenters at our inaugural Summit in 2015. Jed's work in the field has gone from strength to strength as the sector grapples with the inevitable challenges of scale, acceleration and mainstreaming. His new book being released this year, The Purpose of Capital, expands on the following words that serve as a timely reminder of our collective 'why' within the Summit community.Read More

One of the things that is most commented about in impact investing is demonstrating deal flow – and of course, institutional deal flow.
We hear you.
And we’re responding.
At this year’s Impact Investment Summit we’ll have six institutional deals featured as well as a number of deal deep dives, where deals are unpacked to help the audience understand how it was put together, why it chose particular measurement outcomes and how it secured investment – and of course, what the investment methodology is.Read More
Did you know, the Impact Investment Summit will now be taking place in less than a month?
We’re really looking forward to bringing the band back together (i.e. the community!), and are thrilled to have global leaders joining us from around the world.
We’ll have another leader – closer to home – at the Summit. I’m delighted to let you know that The Hon Mike Baird MP, Premier of NSW will be opening the festivities on Wednesday 26 October over our caffeine hits.
I’m personally hoping for a selfie…
I left a career as a political staffer years ago because I wanted to actually spend my doing something that would make a real difference. I didn’t want to spend my time dealing with clusters of crisis after crisis.
I’m reflecting on this now because I’ve just written a piece on the horrendous events in Syria. It took me 30 minutes to blast out, but generally, the energy I expended was negative.
And this is why I love what I do on the Impact Investment Summit and with my own communications advisory, Impact Group International.
Most of us can’t function without our initial caffeine hit. In fact, my brother says that it’s a war crime to try and converse with him until he’s had his first coffee.
I’m writing to assure you that we also have this covered at this year’s Asia Pacific Impact Investment Summit. I promise, you won’t need to switch on the functioning part of your brain until you’ve had a caffeine hit, which will be available to you as you walk in the door at the Darling Island wharf.
Leading investment advisors will descend upon Doltone House in Sydney, 26-28 October for the Impact Investment Summit - Asia Pacific. Following much acclaim from last year’s inaugural event, the Summit line-up of international keynote speakers will be thought provoking and action focused.
A new way of doing business is taking hold, one that harnesses the power of capital markets to deliver social and environmental change. Impact investment is an established, sizeable and global financial market hungry for knowledge sharing, know how, innovation and expertise.
Fast catching the attention of the world’s leading economies, the market for impact investing is estimated to reach US$500 billion– $1 trillion globally, over the next decade.Read More
