Impact investing and subsidized finance

Impact investing and subsidized finance

ATBN and AfriConEU, under the umbrella of the AfriConEU Networking Academy, will host a webinar on the 29th March, 12.00 – 13.30 (CET) about Impact investing and subsidised finance”.

Digital innovation is a key driver for social impact. In Africa, Digital technologies enable locally-led solutions to address the region’s pressing challenges and reach under-served communities. As such, the digital sector is attracting growing interest and funding from impact investors (those seeking social impact alongside financial returns). It is, therefore, crucial for DIHs to understand impact investing and subsidized finance not only for them to be able to attract funding for their programmes but also to support their start-ups to benefit from these opportunities.

AfriConEU, the first Trans-continental Networking Academy for African and European Digital Innovation Hubs in partnership with African Technology Business Network (ATBN), is hosting an online webinar on “Impact Investing and Subsidised Finance”.

The webinar will cover the fundamentals of impact investing and subsidized finance and introduce participants to the key players and funders within the impact investment and finance landscape. There will also be a discussion about what impact funders seek and tips for raising impact finance.

Topics to be discussed:

  • Fundamentals of impact investing and subsidized finance
  • Impact finance landscape – key players and funders
