Join LA+Acumen Impact Circle and the IVY Impact Lab to learn How to Create Change Through Impact Investing. Together we will explore the power of impact investing and learn about the myriad solutions made possible through funding meaningful entrepreneurial projects. Acumen’s goal is to alleviate global poverty by investing in agriculture, education, energy, health, housing, and water. Through an insightful keynote from Jo Opot, Acumen’s West Coast Head of Business Development, we’ll learn how we can get involved to eliminate poverty and inspire others to take up the mantle. To bring her insights to life, we’ll explore a fascinating case study by examining an Acumen portfolio company, Cacao de Colombia, a Colombia-based producer and marketer of premium chocolate that sources its cocoa beans from local farmers in post-conflict areas. This will also be an opportunity to learn about the LA+Acumen Impact Circle and how to become further involved in the work of Acumen. Before and after, we’ll gather for wine and lively conversation. We can’t wait to see you there!
