Nordic-Baltic Investor Skill-sharing
Strengthening the Baltic Impact Investing Ecosystem
The aim of the Investor Skill-Sharing is to strengthen the Baltic impact investing ecosystem, by leveraging the expertise of Nordic countries.
Through a series of three interactive online workshops, investors from the Nordic-Baltic region, who are already involved or interested in investing in social entrepreneurs, will have the opportunity to exchange knowledge, foster new connections, and collectively strengthen their impact investing efforts.
Part of the Integrated Baltic Ecosystem for Social Innovation project
The Nordic-Baltic Investor Skill-Sharing is organised as a part of the Integrated Baltic Ecosystem for Social Innovation (IBESI) project by Reach for Change, Baltic Innovation Agency, Katalista Ventures, and Social Enterprise Estonia. The project is funded by the European Union through the European Innovation Council and SMEs Executive Agency (EISMEA).Learn More
