Are you a fund manager, corporate with impact investing funds or commercial investor looking to venture in to the impact investing space? Then join ANDE SA's Impact Investing Roundtable discussion in South Africa.

The impact investing roundtable will convene expert investors for a discussion on the state of impact investing in South Africa, how commercial investors can identify different approaches to impact investing and share best practices and lessons with one another. The session will also provide a presentation on global innovations in impact investing, with insights on impact investing and blockchain technology. 

 

We hope this will be the first of more roundtable discussions. This preliminary meeting will elicit input from the group on desired future topics.
