General questions

What is the EVPA Impact Month all about?

The EVPA Impact Month is a space for the impact community to come together to learn, share and connect with other players across the globe to maximise their social impact.   ​

With a series of events throughout November catered to the different stakeholders in the impact ecosystem, we will explore how investing for impact can be a driving force for societal recovery and transformation. How impact leaders, impact funds, private and public capital providers, corporate social investors, and others can mobilise resources for a better society, and collaborate to achieve transformative outcomes.

You can expect thought-provoking and inspirational speakers and discussions, interactive workshops, knowledge exchange, networking opportunities, and a space to share your learnings and perspectives with fellow practitioners.

The Impact Month is for all those within the broad impact community or interested in learning more about investing for impact: investors, foundations, social entrepreneurs, policy makers, market builders, academics, etc.

How do I know which event(s) I should or can attend?

All our events are open to everyone, except for the Impact Funds Initiative Meetup and the Investors for Impact Forum (by invitation only).

Each event is targeted to a specific audience - apart from the Annual Conference, which is relevant for all stakeholders in the impact ecosystem. Please click here for more information about the the audience of each event.

I would like to attend the in-person events in Porto. What do I need to do?

The Investors for Impact Forum on 15 November is for capital providers and by invitation only. If you are an Impact Capital Provider and would be interested in attending, please write to conference@evpa.eu.com

The C Summit on 15-16 November is EVPA’s annual gathering of European Corporate Philanthropy & Social Investing practitioners and experts, in cooperation with Dafne and EFC. It will bring together the corporate impact community in Porto. You can register here.

Where I can find the programmes of the different events?

You can view all event programmes here. For the C Summit programme, please visit this page on c-summit.eu.

The names of speakers will be added on an ongoing basis as we receive confirmations.

Can I attend the online events on a smart phone or tablet?

It is possible to join the online Annual Conference on your phone (without installing any app). However, we strongly recommend that you access all online events with a PC instead of phone/tablet for a better user experience.

The crash courses offer an interactive learning experience that requires attendees’ presence and active participation (polls, collaboration tools like Mural/Miro, Slido etc.). We do not recommend joining the course via smartphone or tablet as this can sometimes prevent you from participating properly.

How can I become a partner of the Impact Month or one of its events?

We welcome partners for the Impact Month. If you would like to support EVPA in creating a space for the impact community to come together to learn, share and connect to maximise their social impact, please contact us (email conference(at)evpa.eu.com) to find out about our different partnership and sponsorship opportunities.

I am a journalist. Who can I contact about event coverage/interviews?

If you would like to cover one of our Impact Month events or find out about interview opportunities, please contact Georgina Siklossy, Communications and Partnerships Manager, at gsiklossy(at)evpa.eu.com

How can I follow the Impact Month on social media?

You can follow EVPA on LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook and use/check the hashtag #EVPAImpactMonth

Will the events be recorded and later published?

Only the Annual Conference sessions will be recorded. Recordings will be shared with the participants afterwards.

 

Registration

How can I combine registrations to several different events?

Unfortunately this is not possible and each event has to be booked separately. Only those invited to the Forum can add a ticket to the C Summit in the same registration.

Can I register several persons in my organisations at once?

Yes. The registration form to each event has the "Submit and add extra person" feature.

What is the maximum number of participants from my organisation?

For online Annual Conference, C Summit and crash courses, there are no limits.

For Impact Forum (by invitation only), only one person per organisation can attend.

Until what date are registrations open?

Registrations to our online Annual Conference until the day before the event.

For the C Summit, as the number of participants is limited, the registrations will close once we have reached the maximum number of participants.

Crash course: The participants list is finalised based on registrations before the deadline. In exceptional cases and based on the availability of spots, you may be admitted also when registering after the deadline. Please get directly in touch with the Training Academy team at trainingacademy@evpa.eu.com.

What should I do if I do not receive a confirmation e-mail?

Please check your spam folder. If you did not receive the confirmation please reach out to us at conference(at)evpa.eu.com

My question is still not answered. Who should I contact?

For any further question, please use our contact form or email us directly at conference(at)evpa.eu.com.
