Hey Boston, Let’s Talk About Impact Investing

That’s the topic of the Ross Alumni Club of Boston's annual sustainability event that takes place later this week. And with a lineup of panelists from across industries, it promises to be a deep, engaging discussion.

The event, “Impact Investing: The Peril and Promise of Social Finance at Scale,” will feature a panel that includes expertise from food systems, energy systems, urban enterprise, rural economic development and social entrepreneurship.

“Despite attracting billions of dollars in investor capital and the attention of mainstream investors, the impact sector has only scratched the surface of its enormous potential,” the event listing states. “This year’s sustainability event will explore opportunities and challenges in this sector through a panel discussion with New England Investors.”

A full list of panel members is available on the Ross Alumni Club of Boston’s website.

Ross students themselves have been involved in impact investing for quite some time. The Social Venture Fund was the first student-run impact investing fund in the country when four Ross MBAs started it in 2009, and its portfolio of investments is growing.

The Boston event is open to the public, and tickets are available for $15 for alumni, $25 for non-alumni, and prospective students considering Ross may attend for free. Click here to buy tickets.
