Online Event - Global Virtual Impact Capitalism Summit

The Global Virtual Impact Capitalism Summit will take place on April 21st, 10:00 am - 5:00 pm EDT. This free summit is the world’s largest virtual impact investor summit. It brings together the world's impact investors. This event is brought to you by Big Path Capital, impact investing's investment bank.

ICS is the longest-running series of convenings for investors focused on maximizing impact and maximizing return. All summits produced by Big Path Capital are curated and attendees must apply to attend. Big Path Capital works with more impact companies and funds exclusively than any other investment bank. Top impact companies and funds engage Big Path Capital for company exits, capital raises, and founder liquidity.

While coronavirus is separating us at the moment, this crisis demonstrates how interconnected we really are to one another, our communities, and the planet. That’s something impact investors have recognized for years. At the Summit, world leaders will discuss and chart impact investing’s new role in the age of COVID-19.
