Capital Ideas 2023

27 September 
The Hague – Apollo 14

What if Europe’s leading impact funds joined hands and joined forces? Now that’s a capital idea! 

Impact funds power Europe’s greatest breakthroughs in social and environmental change. But without intentional, curated opportunities to convene, this community misses out on sharing the next big ideas and forging meaningful connections. 

Capital Ideas, an invite-only event organised by EVPA and ImpactVC, brings together Europe’s impact investing community in a compelling peer-to-peer format.

It’s a space of trust, where attendees can connect with likeminded peers, explore co-financing opportunities and share ideas, experiences and knowledge. In practice, that means interactive, hands-on workshops to spark dialogue, encourage bold questions and actively highlight opportunities for collaboration. And, of course, there will be plenty of networking time to connect with new collaborators.

And it will all happen in the Hague, the buzzing hotspot for impact investing luminaries, generously hosted by ImpactCity.

A convivial reception the night of 26 September will precede a full day of workshops. Topics will include fundraising strategy, deal sourcing, policy trends, impact measurement and more – schedule and speakers to be announced soon. The Apollo 14 venue is made for impactful discussions, with facilities built to house our biggest ideas.

In an effort to create safe spaces for impact funds, the event is intimate by design: a place to freely discuss successes, failures and sky-high dreams. With a maximum of 50 attendees, spaces are very limited – contact us today to reserve your spot (one attendee per organisation, please).
