The world is full of opportunities for Impact Investing
84% of the world’s population is located in emerging markets. Naturally, in order to reach the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for 2030 defined by the UN, the focus, support and investments need to shift from developed regions to emerging markets. We decided to lead this initiative by leveraging entrepreneurship and technology.
Attending the Seedstars Summit is the best way to discover the most promising startups, the unicorns-to-be from Africa, Latin America, Asia, Middle East, North Africa, and Central and Eastern Europe; while at the same time learning about the tech trends in those regions and accessing a word-class network of global changemakers!
Impact investment opportunities are everywhere, you just need to know how to leverage them. Watch Alisee de Tonnac’s speech about Impact Investing at the Seedstars Summit 2018!
