    Showcasing Private Equity and Investing in Startups in Opportunity Zones

    This event is the fifth gathering of ICF's working group about Opportunity Zones. The working group's members will discuss early stage venture capital and SME investments that can optimize their Opportunity Zones investment activity.

    What are Opportunity Zones?

    Opportunity Zones have emerged as a transformative economic development tool, providing a new incentive to place much-needed capital into distressed communities. Opportunity Zones also offer investors opportunities to defer and/or reduce their tax liabilities when committing capital within designated areas. A helpful guide to Opportunity Zone investing is here.

    The working group is open to new members. It is relevant to those investing in Opportunity Zones - or supporting such investment - including foundations, financial institutions, impact investing intermediaries, fund managers, investors, attorneys, advisors, and real estate developers.

    Location

    Orrick - 51 W 52nd St, New York, NY 10019.

    Breakfast will be served.

    The event is co-sponsored by Impact Capital Forum and Orrick, a law firm and leading advisor in the Technology, Energy & Infrastructure, and Financial sectors globally.
