OVERALL CONFERENCE GOALS & THEMES:

  • Connect impact investors with entrepreneurs and organizations seeking capital, while leading the discussion on ‘what’s next’.

  • Promote economic development within the region by utilizing Social Venture Capital and Social Enterprise.

  • Educate and engage traditional finance (hedge funds, private banking, venture capital, and angel investment) about investment opportunities within Impact Investing. Work in collaboration with other organizations in establishing effective and standard investment metrics within the industry.

  • Leverage Miami’s reputation as a regional financial capital for the benefit of Impact Investing.

  • Act as a primary connecting point to the Latin American/ Caribbean Diaspora, from whom it is believed some of the next great Social Enterprise leaders can come. As well, the Diaspora may represent a material source of capital for Social Enterprise organizations within the region.

  • Building Miami as a hub of Social Venture Capital/Social Enterprise for Latin America, the Caribbean and state of Florida.
