Click here for video of the 2013 I3C, including the lively keynote panel entitled “Impact Investing: Opportunities and Hurdles for Moving Mainstream” and to access a listing of the finalist teams and their innovative and creative ideas.
I3C gave me a chance to think critically about how to solve societal problems while creating a value proposition that would bring institutional investors and NGOs together at the same table. And I3C was more than just a competition. Our fund received investor attention, not only from the judges present at the event, but also months later from institutional investors abroad wanting to implement our fund strategy. Talk about exciting!
