Impact Investment for Development Summit

The Impact Investment for Development Summit in Yerevan, Armenia (21-23 March 2017) is a first of its kind collaborative dialogue that convenes a wide range of impact business leaders, social venture philanthropists, United Nations officials and other development practitioners, as well as social entrepreneurs, philanthropic organizations, government representatives and leading academics.

The Summit will bring together key stakeholders from the growing impact investment ecosystem, in order to create new models of collaboration between investors, ventures, governments and international development organizations.

“Impact investment and social entrepreneurship is relatively new for development organizations,” said Artak Melkonyan, a senior advisor for the UNDP in Armenia, who organized the conference.

The venue for the summit is the Tumo Center for Creative Technologies, an innovative impact venture that serves as a hub for education and technology and provides a workspace for many technology and media companies in Armenia, which has an increasingly high level of entrepreneurial activity.
