WELCOME TO INDIA –
AN IMPACT ECONOMY

8-9 OCTOBER, 2018
JW MARRIOTT, AEROCITY, NEW DELHI

WELCOME

As communities around the world face the challenges presented by the twenty-first century, a vision of impact economies is emerging: a world where creating positive impact is as central to economic decisions as consideration of risk and return.

What will an impact economy look like? And, what actions do we need to take today to create impact economies across the world?

We invite you to help answer these questions at the 2018 Impact Summit, taking place in October this year in New Delhi, India. The Summit will bring together hundreds of impact leaders: entrepreneurs, investors, philanthropists, corporates, social sector and government leaders and leading market builders. We hope you will be among them.

As part of this year’s Summit, we will:

  • Explore current and future actions by the GSG, our National Advisory Boards and partners to catalyze the impact economies of the future
  • Engage with GSG working groups to define the trajectory of the field and where future work should focus
  • Create a unified vision for the development of impact investing ecosystems across the world.

We hope you will join us for what promises to be a groundbreaking Summit, amid the entrepreneurial energy of New Delhi.

We are advancing well towards Tipping Point 2020. Collectively, we will continue to improve lives and the planet by driving real impact.

We look forward to seeing you on 8-9 October 2018!
