Raising an early-stage impact fund outside of the Valley

Kathryn Wortsman July 5, 2022

So you’re ready to establish your impact-focused venture fund, but where do you start? This interactive workshop will bring together seasoned early-stage impact investors to answer your questions about the subject. Join us for a transparent discussion on the opportunities and challenges of creating an early-stage fund. This workshop is especially pertinent for managers based outside the ‘usual-suspects’ hubs; e.g. SF & NY . From the basics of how to develop your portfolio strategy to challenges around fundraising, this workshop is designed to give the audience the fundamental tools to understand what it takes to kickstart a meaningful impact fund.
