On 17th and 18th of September, 4IP Group Managing Partner and current President Christian Kingombe and 4IP Group Research Associate, Torkil Hvam Sørensen, attended the Third Annual ZUG IMPACT SUMMIT, entitled “Earth and Finance”. Earth & Finance was this year’s summit theme, looking into ways to improve the livelihoods of people and conserve and regenerate the planet. The Zug Impact Summit took place at the Theatre Casino Zug in Switzerland.
This was 4IP Group’s inaugural participation in this event as Alliance Partner of the Swiss Impact Investing Association (SIIA), in our quest to participate in the creation of increased awareness for impact investing in Switzerland, while at the same time matching Swiss Impact Investors with investment opportunities in Emerging and Frontier Markets (see our event showcase). The two 4IP Group delegates met with a unique mix of entrepreneurs, impact investors, and thought-leaders.
The SIIA Zug Summit gathered numerous inspirational speakers, such as Rodney Schwartz Founder, ClearlySo, Martin Palmer Secretary General, Alliance of Religions and Conservation, along with world-class educators, like Robert Rubinstein Chairman from TBLI Group. The second day of the event featured four practical showcases of Gender Equality Investments; five Female Founders pitches and finally, an impressive 18 Water and Sanitation pitches, as part of the Innovate 4 Water part of the programme.
We look forward to building on our exchanges with you to achieve objectives beyond just financial returns.
