Impact Investment Symposium

Hosted by:  Impact Investment Symposium
Wednesday 25 September 2024 | 12:00 PM - 01:30 PM



The Impact Investment Symposium was launched in April 2020. It aims to create meaningful connections, spark collaborations, and develop understanding between investors, philanthropists and social entrepreneurs. The Impact Investment Symposium grew out of longitudinal research (since 2012) on Scottish institutional impact investors and Edinburgh Napier University’s entrepreneurial spirit. It has formed a distinct arm of the School's applied Covid-19 Support to the business community. 


After consultation, the Symposium agreed the following objectives: 

• Champion impact investment and social enterprise in Scotland. 

• Increase investment in businesses which seek to make a positive social or environmental impact. 

• Provide a platform for impactful collaboration. 

• Cultivate viable and scalable business models for social enterprise.

• Support social enterprises affected by COVID-19.
