Impact Capital Forum’s mission is to advance the microfinance, impact, and social enterprise sectors by providing a platform for innovation, collaboration, and thought leadership. As a field-building platform, the Impact Capital Forum facilitates dialogue as well as action. Towards this end, for certain influential and fast-evolving impact themes, we will convene Working Groups, which emerge from Impact Capital Forum events. These working groups will serve as a forum to foster and deepen dialogue and share learnings through monthly meetings.
Register in advance to join our inaugural Opportunity Zone Investing working group.
