Impact investing has become something of a buzzword, and although everybody is talking about it not everyone understands how it can actually work in practice. This may be especially true for Switzerland, where impact investing is, if developing really quickly, still lagging behind the rest of Europe. Bringing together some of the most relevant European experts in the field, the Congress "Impact investment - The key driver for social innovation?" will be an opportunity for all of those interested in impact investing to ask questions, share best practices and learn what other countries are doing on the topic and how this can be transferred to the Swiss context. The event will take place on 19 January 2016 in Zurich.
