Impact investing has grown up. What used to be called socially responsible investing has become a huge area as entrepreneurs tried to solve big problems. Just what is impact investing. What do you need to know as an investor to get involved? What do you need to know as an entrepreneur to tap into this source of funding? Who does impact investing? How to you position your business to receive impact investments?
These are just a few questions to be answered by our stellar panel of experts, who include:
Chenoa Farnsworth – Executive Director of Hawaii Angels – will discuss the trend in general, and introduce us to national organizations focused on the subject.
Trever Asam – Attorney, Cades Shutte – will talk about the B-Corp, a new form of organization that embodies the values of a socially responsible company. Mr. Asam helped get B-Corp legislation passed last year in Hawaii.
