This 80-minute interactive session outlines the financing needs of small and growing businesses vis-a-vis the limits of impact investing and introduces you to Impact-Linked Finance, a practice of linking financial rewards for market-based organizations to the achievements of positive social outcomes. Explore together its potential for enterprise development in emerging economies via concrete examples of impact-linked financing instruments.
Our experts Bjoern Struewer, the founder and CEO of Roots of Impact, and Patrizia Baffioni, the Lead Impact-Linked Finance Programs, will highlight what, why, and how this financing mechanism works and can lead to new mainstream alternatives while providing you with resources and toolkits for further exploration.
