Creativity, Culture & Capital: impact investing in the global creative economy

Sarah Lang May 27, 2021

A discussion with the editorial team from Creativity, Culture & Capital (Laura Callanan, Founding Partner of Upstart Co-Lab; Fran Sanderson, Director of Arts & Culture Investments & Programmes, Nesta; and Carolina Biquard, CEO of Fundación Compromiso) gives an overview of how the creative economy delivers social and environmental impact, and how impact funds are already investing in the creative industries in support of a more just and sustainable global creative economy. The event then moves to break out rooms led by Laura, Fran and Carolina each paired with one of the entrepreneurs or fund managers featured in Creativity, Culture & Capital. The selection of entrepreneurs/fund managers will showcase a variety of geographies, food/fashion/media, and investment structure.
