Want to know more about how to create social impact that is also good for businesss?

Alongside our French member Admical, we would like to personally invite you to explore and discover the themes of Venture Philanthropy & Social Investment. Come and debate with us on:

  • Why & how Social Investment can be a tool for Corporate to go beyond ‘Mécénat d’entreprise’ and look for greater impact?
  • What are the benefits & the challenges of those practices?

The objective of this session is to inspire more corporates to take up their Social Investment strategies as well as to address the best practices and the barriers to propel this promising and growing space forward.

This session, which will be held in English, takes place in the context of EVPA Corporate Initiative bringing together corporate, social incubators/accelerators and other socially-driven corporate entities in search of the most effective ways to maximise their societal impact through a joint learning across Europe.

This event is invite-only. It will gather a select group of key senior leaders to allow exchanges of experiences, networking opportunities and new collaborations.

Admical & EVPA would like to thank the Accenture Foundation for their warm welcome.
