Event description

Description

You are invited to a demonstration of the first Impact Investing Fund dedicated to Southwestern Ontario presented by VERGE Capital. At the session you will learn about Impact Investing as a global, national and local movement.

Do you ever ask questions like?
  • How can I develop oversight on my investments and direct at least some of my investments into environmental leadership, green energy, and local social impact enterprises that demonstrate caring for poverty issues and community development.
  • How can I follow this path with measured footsteps and in ways that still generate a good return, managed by reputable firms?
Many of us turn to that phrase: "you make your way by walking". We invite you to walk into a meeting space created through community based values and hear a demonstration on impact investing. Presented by VERGE Capital, a locally run initiative with a mission to support local investments for local impact.

About southwestern Ontario's first impact investing fund
VERGE Capital Fund 1 is a $2 million fund that will connect local caring investors with organizations with a social and environmental mission at its core. With over $1 million already committed from 5 cornerstone impact investors, learn how you can get involved to support the growth of impact investing in our community.

What to expect
Learn the basics of impact investing and social enterprise as a local, national and global movement. During the Demo Day, guests will meet social entrepreneurs participating in Pillar Nonprofit Network's annual Social Enterprise Accelerator, as well as meet the team working behind the scenes to build impact investing opportunities in our community.

Learn the details about the type of impact investments VERGE Capital Fund I will be making in our region, such as scalable ventures, high impact social enterprises, housing and real estate.
