Impact investing deep dive
Impact Venture Capital in the DACH region 
GP & LP perspectives

Impact venture capital (VC) and impact investing fit precisely into our time. They allow a new look at investments and a different way of investing. Meanwhile, the return expectations for impact funds can keep up with conventional funds' expectations.

In this event, we want to show how LPs and GPs of impact VCs work, act, and exchange ideas about the topic. What factors do impact-focused limited partners look for? Which challenges, processes, and investment requirements are crucial for impact VCs? 

Key questions of the event:

Impact-focused investors - Limited Partner (LP) perspective

  • How do you determine impact criteria for selecting Impact VCs? 
  • How can Limited Partners assess the ESG/ impact readiness of General Partners (GP)?
  • What are the particularities of the Decision-Making process? What are practical examples?

Impact Venture Capital (GP perspective)

  • How do you set up an impact VC fund? What are the underlying criteria and ESG process-es, and regulatory requirements?
  • How does an impact VC work re. team, economics, deal flow, and selection processes?
  • What are practical examples of investments made?
