We're looking back at an incredibly inspiring first Impact Investing Day in Brussels on March 17. It was great hearing the stories of all these (new) Belgian impact investors in person, and to learn from impactful Belgian social entrepreneurs!
Thursday 17 March we came together with nearly 100 new and experienced Belgian impact investors at the University Foundation in Brussels and what a great event it was. Over 90% of our guests have been inspired to start investing (more) in impact!
"My main takeaway? Do it - don't wait!"
We'd like to thank everyone involved for making this event a success.
