We are bringing together social entrepreneurs, funders, lawyers and others professionals in the community for a series of panel discussions exploring a range of legal and business issues for impact investors and companies that want to maximize their positive impact.

New and Existing Corporate Forms for Impact Entities

This session will preview how to blend impact with shareholder value using existing corporate and new forms (Public Benefit, Social Purpose, Benefit and L3C). If you are an entrepreneur (or lawyer representing emerging companies), come learn more about the array of options available and which ones could be right for your business (particularly if you want to raise capital and scale). If you are an investor considering impact investing or a foundation exploring alternatives to philanthropy, this session will provide guidance on how these forms can impact monetary and environmental/ social returns on your investment.
