Investing in women. Values-based investing. ESG investing. Impact investing.
So many of us are searching for the “double bottom line” – making investments that not only realize big returns, but that also fulfill a larger mission for us, and make a real impact.
We want it…and if we can do it, the world will be a better place: aligning our investing with our values.
Join Women 2.0 and Alumni Ventures Group (AVG) for a webinar with venture capitalist and impact investing expert Gail Ball to discuss:
- What it means to invest with your values.
- Trends in impact-based investing, in particular investing in women.
- The state of women in venture – both for investors and entrepreneurs.
- The big difference between philanthropy and values-based investing for returns.
DATE: November 5th
TIME: 2pm EST / 11am PST
