Impact Investment Committee
With the aim to unlock social or environmental challenges while generating financial profit, Impact Investing represents a growing market of new investment opportunities.
EBAN’s Impact Investment Committee (“EIIC”) has been created to:
– develop infrastructure for internal and external communication on the subject of Impact Investing;
– create synergies and collaborative efforts to define best practice and improvements for EBAN members interested in this field;
– develop a bridge between EBAN members and the Impact Investing Community, contributing input and research to the overall field;
– establish a constant dialogue with policy makers relevant to the impact investing industry;
– become leaders in the impact investing space in Europe.
The EIIC, ambassadors of Impact Investing within EBAN, aims to pave the way to setting impact investing as the new standard of excellence.
To that end 3 working groups have been created:
DRUM-BEATING – to bring awareness of impact investing into the EBAN membership + BEST PRACTICE to facilitate impact investment within EBAN and enable cross-member collaboration;
INTERFACES to build paths and partnerships between EBAN/EBAN community and other players in the impact investment space;
RESEARCH agenda to gather and build statistics & metrics of impact investment deals within EBAN community, surveys, articles and publications.
Thanks to the support of the outstanding panel of members of the EIIC, we believe that Impact Investing is a major opportunity all Business Angels and the Seed Investment Ecoystem should be aware and contribute to.
We warmly welcome new members to our group – please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
NOTE: EBAN working committees are working bodies aimed at extending EBAN’s output capacity by building on the knowledge and expertise of its members. Working committees work towards objectives and goals identified by the EBAN community and selected by the Executive Committee. The committee is expected to work independently (setting its own meetings and calls) towards the goal set while keeping a regular flow of communication with a contact point in EBAN administration.
