About Vera Solutions:

About the session:

Following up from our Metrics Learning Lab Launch - Aligning Expectations on Impact Measurement (March 2019) and an Impact Management with Social Value UK, now join ANDE member Vera Solutions for an interactive discussion around Impact Monitoring. In this session, Vera Solutions will address the challenges faced by foundations, impact investors, and non-profits when it comes to managing and monitoring impact.

The session will showcase how technology can effectively feed into the management, evaluation, and improvement of social sector programs. Vera will share important factors to consider when choosing the right tools and platforms for managing a global portfolio of grants, programs, and investments.

Vera Solutions will demonstrate an out-of-the-box solution enabling donors, investors, and capacity developers to trade in complex spreadsheets and disparate report documents for real-time and actionable insights.
