“In the ten years Big Path Capital has been operating, we have yet to find another event that brings together the impact investing leaders like the Impact Capitalism Summit,” said Shawn Lesser, Big Path Capital Co-Founder and Partner. “ICS is a collaborative environment where investors can share best practices, work through problems and continue to move this industry forward.”
“Much of the $60 trillion-dollar wealth transfer will be controlled by women and millennials. This is a game changer for the impact investing community and one with positive systemic changes that will follow in its wake. We are excited to be curating this very important topic,” said Michael Whelchel, Big Path Capital Co-Founder and Partner. “The political environment creates an added pressure on the impact investing industry to continue to excel in creating a more sustainable world.”
