Backing the change-makers in a time of uncertainty: can we do more?


On 13 – 14 November more than 400 delegates will convene in Dublin’s historic Croke Park for the premier event in venture philanthropy and social investment in Europe. This year’s conference titled “Backing the change-makers in a time of uncertainty: can we do more?” will look ahead for new and innovative solutions to support the growth and development of the emerging venture philanthropy and social investment industries from the EU Social Business Initiative to an increase in impact investing to the closer cooperation between social investors and governments and private corporations: these are all developments that are supporting change-makers.

But are we doing enough and can we do more? In addition to the latest emerging trends in the sector, the conference will cover tips and tools of how to do venture philanthropy as well as providing opportunities to go on site visits to meet inspiring social entrepreneurs around the city of Dublin. Delegates will have the possibility to challenge practices within the sector and discuss future opportunities throughout a variety of sessions and workshops. Social and networking events will be part of the programme to ensure delegates have plenty of opportunities to meet new people and contacts across the industry.

There are still a few remaining tickets available so don’t miss your chance to get one of the last spots. Join the event of the year on venture philanthropy and social investment in Europe and be part of the discussion: what can venture philanthropy and social investment do to better support change-makers?
