Open-kimono: making the economics of impact investing stack up

David Sher, Low Carbon Enterprise Fund

Venture and early growth impact investments are risky. Few, if any, portfolio investments offer the lottery ticket returns that allow one deal to make a fund. Creating a sustainable model for an impact fund requires understanding your returns, finding investors with expectations that you can deliver on, and creatively managing your own costs. As an early-stage impact investor in environmental ventures, the Low Carbon Enterprise Fund has developed a model for success. Come hear four investors share different approaches to the same challenge. A useful session for anyone managing or looking to raise an impact fund. For entrepreneurs seeking investment - know what to ask!
Fundraising, impact investing, strategic partnerships
Currently in discussions with a number of early-stage impact funds who each pursue different solutions for creating sustainable investment organisations. Will form a panel that can provide a variety of perspectives on the issue.
