JOIN THE EVENT About the Global Virtual Impact Capitalism Summit

While coronavirus is separating us at the moment, this crisis demonstrates how interconnected we really are to one another, our communities, and the planet. That’s something impact investors have recognized for years.

Big Path Capital presents the Global Virtual Impact Capitalism Summit on April 21, 2020. At the Summit, world leaders in impact will discuss and chart impact investing’s new role in the age of COVID-19. We hope you are able to join the conversation.

ICS is the longest-running series of convenings for investors focused on maximizing impact and maximizing return. All summits produced by Big Path Capital are curated and attendees must apply to attend. Big Path Capital works with more impact companies and funds exclusively than any other investment bank.
