This year we joined  European Venture Philanthropy Association and we will be a part of EVPA 14th Annual Conference. The conference is ultimate event in the social investment and venture philanthropy sector, bringing together different actors from all over Europe, all seeking to create and collaborate in an impactful way.

Europe is facing serious societal challenges, from immigration-integration, climate change, energy poverty, youth unemployment, health care, education amongst many others. These challenges need new innovative solutions. Building these solutions requires both patient capital and cooperation amongst different stakeholders.

In aid to combat these societal challenges, each year we bring together different actors who are at the top of their profession from the social investment and venture philanthropy sector at Europe’s largest and recognisedAnnual Conference. This year 14th Annual Conference ‘New Frontiers For Impact’ will be held on 29 and 30 November, in Warsaw, Poland.

Currently, only 2% of venture philanthropy investments are allocated to CEE, while 67% go to Western Europe. Social entrepreneurs face difficulties in accessing patient early stage capital that does not demand high financial returns. By organising the 14th EVPA Annual Conference in Central Eastern Europe, we hope to build a different message around the region, to increase resources and bring new actors into the sector.

During the conference, our VP – Anna Sienicka will speak about  Impact Management for Startups and Organisations dedicated to Tech4Good.
