Is Sustainability a $10 Trillion Opportunity ?
In the start-up community, we often come across market opportunities worth millions or billions; but have we ever come across a trillion dollar opportunity? The opportunities presented by the sustainable development goals, and the changing attitudes of Millennials, are signs that sustainability is such an opportunity for investors at all stages of the business lifecycle.
Recognize that start-ups driven by passion, technology, and doing good, lead to more profits in the long run; so much so that impact investing is fast becoming the new venture capital.
PRIVATE EQUITY FIRMS
Recognise that companies who embed environmental and social factors generate higher returns; So much so one of the most successful private equity firms, attributed their decade long success to sustainable investments.
We are seeing a funding ecosystem that allows a new breed of ‘Sustainability Unicorns’ to be created. Are these unicorns best positioned to capitalize a new wave of Trillion Dollar Opportunities ?
In this session, we will explore the differences between impacting investing and traditional investing; discuss the ways in which sustainable investments can benefit investors and entrepreneurs; and summarise the practical steps all of us can take to fully embrace the sustainability revolution.
WE WILL UPDATE THIS SECTION WHEN THE PANELISTS ARE CONFIRMED.
