Purpose isn’t just a nice-to-have, it’s good for business. 

Now, more than ever, businesses are placing an increased emphasis on turning that talk into action. And the reason is clear — Consumers are more likely to choose a product that is driven by a social mission; young employees are seeking to work in places with meaning; and investors are increasingly concerned with sustainability and wellbeing.

So how can startups look at embedding impact into their models? And is social impact and return truly mutually exclusive?

Join us as we dig deeper into answering this and more with Rachel Yang, Partner at Giant Leap, Australia first 100% impact venture capital fund. Rachel is also the Co-Chair of Startup Victoria and carries years of experience across management consulting, corporate finance, and non-profit organisations.

We’ll be unpacking:

  • The world of impact investment
  • Pursuing purpose as a sound business decision
  • Mechanisms for sustained impact
