Impactful Entrepreneurs & Investors
Impact Invest is putting women entrepreneurs and women investors on stage this night, in collaboration with SheSupp.
Why focus on women? Half of all new companies in Sweden are started by women, but more than 90% of money available for seed funding is still invested in male led companies. In part this is a result of inequality in the financial sector; few women make the decisions about investments. Within impact investing though, the social purpose of a business often capitalises on women's professional experiences and interests.
The event will be a gathering for members of Impact Invest, invited guests, and the network of SheSupp. Men are welcome too!
What to expect during the evening:
- Women investors sharing how they invest and what social or environmental outcomes they want to see. We will also talk about what is done to support women entreprenuers in our region. Our panellist include Josephine Korijn (New AJE Capital, Northvolt), Anna Svahn (founder Feminvest) och Julika Lamberth (Stockholm Invest).
- Pitches from social innovators (updated list);
StayFit: Encouraging people to excercise and look after their physical and mental health;
TootaPen: A book publishing company for children authors
Panion: A service to make new friends through common interests and activities.
- Connect with entrepreneurs and investors, share experiences and learn from each other
- Opportunity to learn more about impact investment
If you are new to impact investing, this is a good opportunity to learn how it differs from traditional angel and venture investments. Enjoy the evening with peers, and take the opportunity to mingle and make new contacts with investors and entrepreneurs.
