Innovation, Transformation and Impact Workshop

24 Feb 2021
1:00pm - 5:00pm PST

From Innovation to Impact and Transformation

Align your business and financial model with environmental, social, and governance (ESG) impact for increased access to capital.


About the program

From Innovation to Impact is a fast-paced, three-day program designed to help participants gain a deeper understanding of the impact their businesses create now, and in the future. Over three half-day workshops participating businesses will work within a collaborative cohort to vision the future of their ESG impacts, understand how to measure their unique impact business model, and formalize the key performance indicators and metrics that will open up access to impact investment and patient capital.

Half-day sessions include presentations and hands-on instruction from facilitators and rich peer-to-peer discussions. From Innovation to Impact is delivered completely online and two participants from each registered business may attend the program. This program has been crafted by the radical collaboration between VANTEC Angel Network, Tandem Innovation Group, and Decade Impact.
