The Social Innovation Tournament (SIT), organised annually since 2012 by the European Investment Bank Institute, recognises and supports the 15 best European entrepreneurs whose primary purpose is to generate a social, ethical or environmental impact. These impact entrepreneurs then become members of the EIB Institute SIT alumni, benefiting from capacity building, executive training, and fundraising opportunities. The SIT alumni now has more than 100 impact entrepreneurs.

At the EVPA Annual Conference you’ll have the chance to get to know ten of the highest potential impact ventures in the network who are looking for funding to further develop and scale their innovative solutions. The impact entrepreneurs presenting at the session are trained at Católica-Lisbon’s Scaling Impact Bootcamp to deliver a short and effective investor pitch.

This session, hosted by the EIB Institute, takes place on November 6th at 13.30h and the ten pitches will be followed by networking opportunities and by a plenary discussion and sharing in the last hour on deal flow and social investment opportunities in Europe.

Join us, be inspired by these impact entrepreneurs and learn about the exciting venture philanthropy and social investment deal flow from Europe.
