Impact Leaders

Europe’s impact leaders are invited to join us for a two-day event celebrating our first 20 years – and reimagining the next 20 – on 2 and 3 September in Venice.


Acorns to Oaks 

Gathered in the heart of Venice, we’ll connect the first and the next generations of impact leaders to see the starkest challenges for people and the planet from new angles. We’ll join heads and hands around the concepts and practices of catalytic capital, impact integrity and collective impact action. Along the way, we’ll leverage lessons from the past and look boldly to the future, as we spotlight the people, projects, partnerships, places and principles that broke ground on venture philanthropy and built the movements of strategic philanthropy, impact investing and corporate impact. 

Fair and Neutral

We’ll strive for breakthroughs at the intersection of social and environmental impact, zeroing in on climate justice and the just transition with the aim to deliver not just an action plan, but a community to deliver on its promises.

At the Venice Film Festival, happening concurrently with our event, we’ll present the first ever Impact Award, underscoring the power of stories to change minds.

Invitations out soon!

While much has changed in our world in 20 years, we're keeping one thing exactly the same: the unique and purpose-driven connections only Impact Europe can forge. Join us as we connect the individuals with the capital and influence to change the world with those whose expertise and creativity are reinventing education, health, tech, finance, entrepreneurship, philanthropy and society. 


Convened together with our founders 

Doug Miller and Stephen Dawson
