Turin is preparing to become the European capital of social- and environmental-impact finance. EVPA Impact Week in November will be a unique opportunity for the global community to come together and find out more about new trends in the industry. The Fondazione Compagnia di San Paolo is one of the initiative’s anchor sponsors.
The European Venture Philanthropy Association (EVPA),an international network that connects over 300 entities – including foundations, social impact funds, financial institutions, universities, incubators and accelerators from over 35 countries – has selected the capital of Piedmont as the venue for ImpactWeek 2023, the biggest event in Europe in the field of impact investing and venture philanthropy, due to take place from 22 to 24 November.
Hosted at the Officine Grandi RiparazioniTorino, the hub dedicated to innovation and impact with specific reference to the topics of culture and technologies, the 2023 event forms part of the Turin ecosystem of impact, as a result of the joint work of the Fondazione Compagnia di San Paolo, the CRT Foundation and Torino Social Impact.
Fondazione Time 2 and Cottino Social Impact Campus are also content partners in the initiative.
Taking part in the event will be over 1000 impact players from all over the world, over three days that promise to provide significant food for thought through workshops. There will be also meetings with over 30 sessions to choose from, divided into six lines of action: The Triple Crisis, Take Care, Impact Works, Impact by Numbers, Impact Cities, Impact by Design.
Registration is required to take part in Impact Week 2023. You can sign up now here.
