Return on Impact: 20th April 2017

London Business School, NW1 4SA

With the evolving social consciousness of the 21st century, interest in environmentally and socially responsible investment has grown by 33% since just 2014--now encompassing $8.7 trillion in actively managed assets worldwide.  Investors are increasingly asking: how can businesses and individuals invest in ways that produce measurable social or environmental return alongside financial returns? How do we measure and quantify those returns? Most of all, how can we maximise return in the arenas of social and environmental impact?

This year, the London Business School Net Impact Chapter invites anyone with an interest in social impact investing--whether VC's, investment banks, corporates, private investors, or entrepreneurs--to join the LBS Net Impact Conference 2017: Return on Impact.

With an innovative format to promote interaction and debate, we welcome participants with all levels of experience and from all walks of life to an evening of immersion to gain the knowledge, tools, and perspectives to work within the Impact Investing space.
