Event Details

Are you an investor interested in learning about impact investing and how you can make good impact investments? 

Join us as we showcase the SVX platform and our community of SVX issuers!

Social Venture Connexion (SVX) is excited to provide an opportunity for you to learn about impact investing and a selection of the impact investment opportunities available through our platform. You can get a preview of the presenting issuers below.

We want to bring impact investing to Main Street. (Or in the case of Hamilton, the corner of King and James, just a bit south of Main Street). This event is open to anyone from experienced angel investors to retail investors.

SVX is the first and only platform in Canada focused on providing access to impact investing opportunities for all Canadians, and providing a pathway for ventures, funds and organizations to raise debt and equity capital. We are the one-stop-shop you need to find investment opportunities that align with your values!

Light refreshments will be provided.

John Gormaly and Dr. Brent McKnight from McMaster University will report on new research exploring awareness, attitudes, and intentions with respect to impact investing at the retail level. This work is informed by interviews with impact investing thought leaders and the results of a nationally representative survey. This work is supported by a research grant from the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) Foundation for Philanthropy Canada.

The World Tree Carbon Offset Program is a sustainable timber investment based on the Empress Splendor tree, the fastest growing tree in the world. Empress trees provide valuable hardwood lumber within just 10 years. They also absorb 11 times more carbon than any other tree. Participants in the program both offset their carbon footprint and share in the profits of the sale of the lumber.

We work with all investors, from foundations and family offices to everyday investors, to help them identify opportunities and to support their decision-making efforts so they can match their money with meaning.
