Our SplitBiz speaker is Virginia Schippers, Director of Investor Relations and Impact at CARE-BAMBOO FUND. The fund promotes social and economic inclusion, serving marginalised people-- particularly women, in South and South East Asia.
The world of business has broadened and so investors had to follow. As businesses started thinking more about sustainability and social responsibility, the social entrepreneurship sector has grown exponentially.
This led to the formation of impact investment, a way in which we as business angels or investors can not only ask for a financial return but also a social one.
Virginia explains exactly how impact investment works and shares her own global experience. Using this as a benchmark, we will then look impact investing in Croatia and how we can help shape its future from Split, especially in the agribusiness sector.
The event is free and includes a presentation followed by open discussion.
The meetup will be at the newly opened Fig Split where we will have our own presentation room. They have just started serving dinner on top of their breakfast and lunch menu, so feel free to stick around to taste some delicious dishes.
