Increasing knowledge about catalytic capital and bolstering its deployment – these are the goals of Impact Europe's collaboration with the Catalytic Capital Consortium.  Having already sparked a global discussion, held practitioner gatherings, collected case studies and published Catalysing Impact, we have also taken the community’s vision of catalytic capital to a wider audience. The impact space, mainstream finance and public sector actors can all help address critical social and environmental gaps that are being overlooked. Equipped with insights on what catalytic capital is and how it works, we can now shift the focus to actionable outcomes and collective advancement. In 2024 and beyond, join us in translating knowledge into impactful joint efforts, within Europe and globally!
