The 12th Annual UBC Net Impact conference will focus on social investment, sometimes referred to as impact investing, and social enterprise. The conference will aim to deepen our understanding of socially responsible financing by addressing questions such as: How do we balance financial and social impact? What are the risks associated with impact investing? What happens post-investment?
The goal of the conference is to bring together experts from various fields including technology and entrepreneurship, housing, food and agriculture, and natural resources, in an effort to better understand how the business world perceives and employs principles of social finance. As a group of MBA candidates with great interest in these and other sustainability-related topics in business, we aim to create an exciting learning environment for all by providing a broad representation of socially responsible ventures at this year’s Vancouver Net Impact Conference.
