Founded in 2003, the Impact Capital Forum (ICF) was previously named the Microfinance Club of New York (MFCNY). Our original mission was to serve as the leading forum for the free exchange of information and ideas about microfinance.
Since then we have expanded our scope to address all aspects of financial capital, human capital, technology and natural resources that benefit the world through the lens of financial services. ICF now has over 2,500 individuals in our network. Most members are professionals with a background in financial services / financial inclusion / fintech; however, membership is open to anyone who supports the club's mission, including university participants. The club hosts approximately 25 events per year on different topics currently relevant to impact investing and social enterprise. Events range from panel discussions to breakfasts and investor presentations.
