When it comes to activating impact capital, fostering place-based investing is just as important as and complementary to growing a national community of impact investors.
That’s why we’re excited to have partnered with Salmon Capital Holdings, The City of Campbell River, Rhiza Capital, Study-Build, and CRAAG to bring you the Campbell River Impact Investor Challenge in tandem with our national programming.
The first of its kind, this collaborative place-based Challenge seeks to be a pioneer in the space of attracting innovation and impact capital to small communities and specific regions. Such initiatives encourage and uplift local impact entrepreneurship, fostering economic development in the locales where they are based.
Open to applicants from across British Columbia, the Campbell River Impact Investor Challenge has also set out to highlight up-and-coming companies from Campbell River. At Pitch Night—the traditional Impact Investor Challenge public kickoff—we will witness pitches from both the Top 20 companies selected to proceed in the Challenge along with select ventures based in Campbell River to keep an eye out for as they grow.
Join us at Pitch Night on April 21st, 2021 to witness all of the companies deliver their pitches, and read on to meet the Top 20!
