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.
The Social Finance Forum is Canada’s leading event for people who believe profits should be paired with purpose.
Every day, billions of dollars are invested with the sole intention of making more dollars, while life-changing social programs and vital environmental initiatives struggle for funding. Impact investing is the fast-growing movement that’s closing that gap by promoting profitable investments in programs and ventures that power progress.
Now in its 11th year, the Social Finance Forum, organized and convened by the MaRS Centre for Impact Investing, attracts more than 500 investors, entrepreneurs, finance professionals, charity leaders and public service visionaries who are reshaping markets and ensuring that every dollar makes a difference.
