The New Frontier of Entrepreneurship & Impact Investment: Reimagining the Potential of the Artisan Sector

Join us in a two-part discussion to understand why we need a flourishing artisan sector now more than ever. Why investment in the artisan sector can bridge the widening inequalities and opportunity gaps created by the knowledge economy, and learn how you can support entrepreneurs in this sector. 

Nureen Das of The Artesan Gateway and Priya Krishnamoorthy of 200 Million Artisans moderate a discussion with entrepreneurs and impact investors to understand the potential of the artisan sector as an economic driver for development; why it presents an opportunity for investors and funders to diversify and shift their portfolios towards greater impact; and what are business models that are unlocking the potential of artisan-based enterprises in emerging markets.

 Part 1: View from the Ground: Entrepreneurs Creating New Business Models

Part 2: Let’s Talk Money: Funders and Investors Who Are Backing Them
