Impact Investment Opportunities in Central & Eastern Europe

The CEE Impact Day is a unique gathering to delve deeper into the potential of Impact Investment in Central and Eastern Europe.

A new paradigm for capitalism is emerging. Impact Investors are redefining value creation by utilizing capital in ways that maximize environmental, social, and financial benefit. The idea of impact investing is increasingly appealing for both social ventures and investors in Central and Eastern Europe.

Each year, the CEE Impact Day gathers global organizations, individual and institutional investors, and selected ventures to explore the growing investment opportunities in this region.

More than 100 established players and emerging actors in the social investment field will gather in Vienna for the CEE Impact Day 2016.

Let's celebrate the 5th anniversary of this forum and the progress that has been accomplished in the impact eco-system!

Content will include:

  • Introduction to Impact Investment globally
  • Central and Eastern Europe in the spotlight
  • Advancing the social venture and social investment market in CEE
  • Meet selected entrepreneurs

“Is there impact? - that is the question each investor should ask himself.”

“Social impact used to be solely related to charity. Profit was solely related to business. We are changing that paradigm here. If 2 years ago I had to explain to corporates and investors what is the term impact investing, now all that is changing. And we are the ones who are creating that new ecosystem of impact investing.”

Julia Balandina, JBJ Consult, Panelist at the CEE Impact Day 2014

“To see so much extraordinary energy and creativity is very powerful. I am very pleased to see how much investment there is in the field of impact and I am grateful to be part of an event that captures the potential and greatness of this sector.”
