How to tailor an Impact Investing strategy in the most efficient way.
If you are interested in learning how to choose the most suitable financial instrument(s) to support a SPO in a more efficient way, then EVPA in collaboration with France Active has designed the perfect course for your needs. This training is based on the latest report that EVPA published, “Financing for Social Impact: The key role of Tailored Financing and Hybrid Finance”, which is warmly welcomed in the sector and portrays how tailored financing can lead to more sustainable and stronger SPOs.
If you are interested in:
- getting a better understanding of the financial instruments (FIs) – grants, debt, equity – available to fund social purpose organisations (SPOs)
- acquiring practical knowledge on how to use them to match your goals as venture philanthropy organisations and social investors (VPO/SIs) with the needs of SPOs
- learning how to tailor the financial support you provide to maximise the social impact generated
Then, this training is an excellent choice for you because it will look at both the characteristics of the investors and the financial needs of their potential grantees/investees to assess pros and cons of each FI in order to select the ones that are the most suitable, based on the business model and the stage of development of the SPOs. You will have the chance to meet practitioners with a long experience in the sector who will present real-life case studies in an active and dynamic manner to enhance your learning.
Who should attend?
The programme primarily targets investment managers of organisations that invest capital to sustain social innovation as venture philanthropy and social investment organisations, including as an example social impact and impact investing funds, grant-making foundations and private investors. The training is open also to other professionals interested in the topic, provided that they have at least a basic knowledge of financial analysis, in order to allow them make the most of the two-day course.
Please note that this course will not address the practical technicalities linked to the design of FIs in specific countries.

Different design approaches, such as design thinking, human centred design and co-design, have become more and more popular over the last ten years as a means of addressing complex problems.
Different design approaches, such as design thinking, human centred design and co-design, have become more and more popular over the last ten years as a means of addressing complex problems. These approaches are underpinned by an emphasis on understanding and incorporating the ‘human’ that experiences problems or issues first hand. With the use of different design approaches increasing across society, there is a need for clarity over what these design approaches are, what they mean for staff who design and deliver programs that draw on such approaches.
Similarly, evaluation is a key aspect of project and program delivery, and yet it is often left to the end or is an afterthought. In some ways this occurs because of a lack of familiarity with when and how to embed evaluation into programs. Ultimately, good evaluation practice starts during the design process and provides a way to continuously improve and demonstrate impact.
This unique two-day workshop brings together the worlds of design and evaluation to provide participants with the opportunity to increase their knowledge and skills in program design and evaluation.

Firmly established as the leading event on net impact approaches, the conference convenes leading experts and organisations on measuring and valuing impacts to evaluate, demonstrate or aim for a net zero or positive impact.
Once again, for 2019, the ambition is to bring the different communities involved in net impact approaches together, and encourage more organisations to adopt such approaches.
The event offers unparalleled insights and networking on the topic, and caters for beginners wanting to find out more and how to make a start, to experienced practitioners pushing the boundaries.
Businesses, investors, governments and consumers increasingly recognise that the existing capitalist economic model is no longer acting is society’s best overall interests. Significant shifts in how businesses operate are required to avert some potentially catastrophic outcomes. One of the most exciting and rapidly evolving shifts at present is the transition from moving beyond basic ‘sustainability’ practices of mimimising impacts to adopting ‘no net loss’ or ideally ‘net positive impacts’ from an environmental and social perspective.
Early bird tickets now available (offer ends 28 February). Visit Eventbrite for details.
