The Blackstone LaunchPad & Techstars is pleased to present two special events in December on the topic of social impact.  We invite you to join us December 4 and December 10 for virtual workshops with leading thinkers from the Gates Foundation, Venture for America, Future Founders, Echoing Green and the Blackstone Charitable Foundation.

Learn about the social impact funding landscape, Thursday, December 4 p.m. at a special event with Min Pease, Senior Community Manager at the Gates Foundation.  Pease will be discussing various options for funding social impact startups, including equity investment, impact investors, PRI and MRI grants, loans and credit, and more. Register here.

Learn even more at a social impact pipeline opportunities panel, Thursday, December 10 at 11 a.m. The journey of a social impact founder and startup are often different than that of a traditional entrepreneur and business. In this session, students will hear the ‘inside track’ from several individuals familiar with these pathways and the skills and steps required to access them.  Joining the panel are: Camila Pazos, Director – Investments, Echoing Green; Katie Sowa, COO, Future Founders; Jacob Robinson, Senior Talent Manager, Venture for America; and Takhani Kromah, Director, Blackstone Charitable Foundation.  Register here.

Both events are Eastern Standard Time.
