The Impact Acceleration Group is an EVPA programme that gathers progressive corporate social investors (CSIs, i.e., corporate foundations, impact funds, CSR and Corporate Citizenship teams) to explore the key opportunity in the corporate social investing ecosystem to accelerate positive change for people and planet at scale (on top of their core mission to serve their end beneficiaries).
With this objective in mind, a group of pioneering CSIs first met in June 2022. The group identified the area of accelerating the related corporate impact journey as a key opportunity for CSIs, and for some of them even influencing business models. The group dives into this topic during intimate quarterly meetups to innovate and share learning in that area.
The next meetup will take place on 13 October 10:30 – 12:00. We will take stock of the first two online sessions in January and March, discuss the learnings from Business of Impact in Venice, and discuss the way forward for this programme. A more detailed agenda will be shared prior to the meet-up. If you would like to learn more and join this programme, express your interest by sending an email to Nicolas Malmendier at nmalmendier(at)evpa.ngo. Please note that these are members only practitioner gatherings and only corporate social investors (i.e. corporate foundations, impact funds, CSR and Corporate Citizenship teams) are admissible to join.
