Over the last 2 years, the Investment and Innovation in Microfinance conference series has delivered over 11 conferences globally for investors and MFIs. This year’s meeting takes into account the shifting nature of Microfinance and the negativity surrounding the industry.
The aim in 2011, is to bring together commercial investors, impact fund managers and MFIs who, together, can construct a business model that will scale up impact investing as well ignite the energy and enthusiasm of the sector.
By attending this meeting, you will be able to evaluate the investment options available to you to ensure that you are receiving market rate returns as well as achieving your social goals.
We have identified the key areas that microfinance and impact investors are struggling with. These include:
• Move past microfinance into the impact investing space
• Evaluate the investment options available at the bottom of the pyramid
• Construct a robust business model that will scale up impact investments
• Find an industry measurement standard to work by Lend in a responsible way to tackle over-indebtedness
• Fight the crisis and tackle the negative image of Microfinance
Over 2 days, we will welcome:
• Current impact investors investing in housing, health, education, sanitation and energy
• Fund managers looking to invest at the base of the pyramid
• Today’s largest and most successful delivery channels
• MFIs ready to receive investment
