Valencia – November 2018.
The first impact forum (Fi18) - promoted by “Social Nest” Foundation (sustainable business incubator) and financed by the “Generalitat Valenciana” (local government), “CaixaBank” (service for start-ups and investors) and “Zubi Labs” (co-founder and investor of entities with social and environmental impact) - has taken place in Valencia, becoming a meeting point for investors, entrepreneurs, philanthropists and institutions (national to international), driven by the goal of contributing to a better and more sustainable future.
This Forum aims to become a key catalyst for impact investment in Spain and to approach the economy and entrepreneurship from a new point of view. Through round tables, conversations and pitches, Fi18 activates a community of people and institutions to continue promoting impact investment opportunities, expanding knowledge of global trends in the sector. Speakers included María Ángeles León, co-founder of the Open Value Foundation; Agustín Vitórica, co-founder of GAWA Capital, Iker Marcaide, founder of Zubi Labs, among other.
This meeting has been a clear sign of the importance that socially responsible investment is gaining in Spain, leading to a paradigm shift in the industry, marked by an ever-growing importance of the ESG criteria (environmental, social and good corporate governance).
