Social Finance Forum

The way people and organizations invest is changing fast. New financial technologies are simplifying investing and giving individuals greater control over their money. At the same time, a new kind of activist investor is emerging. These demand investments that drive social progress or accelerate the shift to a clean economy – while still creating a profit.

What do these financial shifts mean for investors? How can social entrepreneurs and clean technology companies capitalize on them? And will they create a fairer and greener economy?

The Social Finance Forum is the place to find out.

Now in its 10th year, the Forum, organized by MaRS Centre for Impact Investing, is Canada’s leading gathering of impact investors, social entrepreneurs and social finance professionals.
