Getting the right investment has always been a crucial stepping-stone for any successful social business. But do you know which types of investments to look out for in an emerging market?
You can discover how to achieve the critical early-stage funding for your social business and learn how impact investing differs from ordinary investments in this talk organized by Impact Hub Cambodia, “In The Hot Seat: Impact Investments” held this Saturday, 20 June 2015 from 9am to 12pm at Impact Hub, Joma Bakery café along Norodom Boulevard, Phnom Penh.
Impact investment is a form of social responsible investing, which promotes a measurable, beneficial social impact alongside a financial return for a responsible and sustainable economy for the community. Unlike an ordinary investment, Impact investors tend to engage with businesses with the potential to expand and encourage the growth of new industries with their successes to address a particular environmental or social issue as part of their investment policies and objectives.
Hence this helps to benefit and cultivate successful social businesses by providing the necessary capital while contributing back to support the development of the growing needs of a community or social issue.
Attendees to the workshop can expect to learn more about impact investments from the experts and more importantly, how does the different asset classes involved and the investment mechanism and processes work for impact investing.
In addition, participants will get to know what investors are looking out for, which is vital in securing a potential successful funding for your start-up or social business!
Furthermore, there will be an exciting Q&A session conducted by Marco Aletti, an associate from Insitor Management whom will provide a deeper insight into the world of impact investment and how it can benefit your social business.
