Results driven co-operation for societal well-being


The Finnish National Impact Investing Advisory Board represents all of the central actors for impact investing. The mission of the National Advisory Board is to promote the construction of the impact investing ecosystem in Finland. Its purpose is to provide support to all three ‘cornerstones’: the public sector, service providers and investors. A co-ordinating operator such as Sitra will be needed in the future as well with the purpose to convene various actors and to support operational practices.

    Important Update!

    As previously announced, we have very reluctantly had to cancel arrangements to hold the 2019 Impact Summit in Santiago, owing to continuing civil unrest. 


    We are happy to announce that we have been successful in shifting the Summit to Buenos Aires, 18-19 November, followed as previously by the SOCAP, FMO, ACTO and NAB meetings on the 20th November.


    Please do finalize your travel arrangements. We will send out an accommodation booking link early next week.

    You will find updates to the Summit agenda and speakers on our website, over the next few days.

    If you have any questions, please contact summit2019@gsgii.org.


    We look forward to seeing you in Buenos Aires!
