2021 Impact Investor Challenge

Learn the skills to maximize your impact through purpose-driven investing and entrepreneurship.

About Spring’s Impact Investor Challenge

We run the Impact Investor Challenge to grow the impact investor community, guide investors and impact-curious individuals into impact investing, empower and fund impact entrepreneurs.

Elevating impact investing can drive innovation in impact and accelerate ideas that can help build a better world for all, fostering local and global economic development and equity.

Who is the Impact Investor Challenge for and what exactly is it? The Challenge is a 10-week training program for both early-stage impact investors seeking to make investments and purpose-driven entrepreneurs looking to fundraise.

Throughout the program’s 2-hour weekly sessions, participants hear from local and global industry experts and have the chance to gain insights, build their networks, and acquire resources to become successful in their respective domains.

At the end of the program, the investor cohort collectively awards $100,000 in investments to their top chosen company from the entrepreneur cohort.

The Impact Investor Challenge will leave you with a network of impact investors, key players in the Canadian startup ecosystem, and emerging mission-driven companies.
