Family Day

Families are a core part of our membership. We organize this members-only event the day preceding our Impact Days. This is a safe space for learning and sharing. We discuss case studies, hear personal journeys from fellow participants, and get up to date about developments in impact investing.

Women’s Wealth Matters

Did you know that women invest differently than men? Women are more likely to invest in social enterprises. Quite a few women play a leading role in impact investing.
In Women’s Wealth Matters (WWM) we facilitate the conversation among women about a wide range of topics. What is your relationship with money? How do you find your purpose, how would you like to make a difference with your capital? What do you expect from your investments?

WWM is an ongoing series of events for female wealth holders only. 

Why attend WWM?

  • Join a diverse network of women: seasoned investors, entrepreneurs and nextgens
  • Gain more clarity about your purpose to invest for good
  • Walk away with new insights, ideas and connections

Investor Tables

At our Investor Tables we bring together entrepreneurs, investors and fund managers.

We zoom in on a theme and specific investment opportunities. You get the opportunity to discuss these in small groups. There is also ample room to network during the drinks afterwards.

A guest speaker starts off the meeting with a keynote followed by several short company and fund pitches. You can participate in question-and-answer sessions with the companies and funds who presented. We exchange our findings and gather the feedback to share it anonymously with the presenters.

Introduction to Sustainable & Impact Investing

Discover the tools to start deploying your wealth in alignment with your values. 

During this 1,5 hour interactive session, you will be introduced to the basics of impact investing and sustainable investments, and how they can be applied to your own impact journey.
