New Power Investing: To create and practice a new kind of investment system by which everyone benefits

June 4 @ 8:00 am - 9:30 am

What if you could invest in ways that rocket fuels the way to gender equity and flourishing for all globally–and provides competitive returns along the way for use of excess capital?

Many predicted investors would clearly jump at the chance. But they’re not. So what’s holding us back?

At Marigold, we’re focused on changing the flow of capital in a way that accererates gender equity and equality, which in turn advances flourishing and prosperity for all.

In this interactive “think and do” workshop, you will learn why social impact funds are still seen as side shows versus mainstage and what needs to be done to turn that around.

Marigold will present research and its own learnings which has led to its ability to identify an exciting, new way of investing to advance gender justice–without compromising on financial returns.

Participants will have the opportunity to hear three, three minute pitches from three enterprises and then apply our experimental but exciting new system of due diligence to determine which one of the ventures you would invest in. Discussion will follow.

AGENDA IN BRIEF:

  • Welcome
  • Keynote Presentation: “New Power Investing” by Jonathan Hera, Marigold Capital
