Mindsets and Practices of investors and funders to optimize impactful solutions to scale

Join our 2nd Impact for Breakfast event of the year in London this September. The session will be led by Spring Impact and will focus on unpacking the mindsets and practices that investors and funders can adopt to truly drive and enable impactful solutions to scale.

As we all know, fundraising is a significant challenge for any organization. Funding is a scarce resource and must be utilized wisely to make a meaningful impact on societal issues. At this event hosted by Spring Impact we will explore how investors and funders can best deploy capital to achieve impact at scale.

We will discuss the mindsets and specific skills and capabilities investors need to build, as well as the most practical funding practices, tools, and approaches that work (and those that don't!) in support of grantees to scale. Leading funders including Sport England and British International Investment (BII) will join us to share their journeys and hard-won lessons.

This session is tailored to social impact funders or investors across the gamut, from foundations to venture philanthropy providers. If this applies to you, we invite you to join us for what will undoubtedly be an insightful morning exchange!

Date: 27th of September
