Every morning we give you an overview of what happened online the previous day during our 16th EVPA Annual Conference and give you a glimpse of what to expect for the afternoon.
For this 16th edition of our Annual Conference, we have gathered over 650 registrations with over 80 speakers. Many thanks for your participation.
The first results of the EVPA Investing for Impact Survey 2020 are out!
As announced by EVPA Chair Steven Serneels during his keynote today, the first results of our industry survey are now available in the form of two infographics, each focusing on a key stakeholder in the impact space: impact funds and foundations/engaged-making organisations.
- EVPA boss Serneels urges impact investors and networks to break from silos and build alliances
- Public sector bodies shift from one-dimensional solutions to ‘market participants’ in social investment
- Crucial months ahead for future of EU social enterprise funding
