Worldwide Impact Investing:
The Role of Entrepreneurs


With the world facing a plethora of social and environmental challenges, the practice of impact investing has become something of a trend in the past decade. In fact, such investments are now beginning to question the archaic notion that global issues can be tackled only through philanthropic contributions, with market investments focusing exclusively on monetary gain.

This new emerging form of investment comes with a promise to bring out the best of the nonprofit and for-profit systems, combining them to yield positive social and environmental impact in addition to tidy financial returns. It appears to be a win-win formula and as the call for addressing global problems and reaching sustainable development goals amplifies, so do the opportunities for both investors and innovators.

Set in the cosmopolitan city of Paris, France, the Youth Global Forum is composed not only to equip young business people with the necessary tools to thrive in the realms of impact investment, but also to foster leadership, human values and a strong sense of social responsibility. Through a harmonious combination of educational programs and cultural exchange activities, participants will leave the event feeling empowered and inspired to generate positive change within their communities. A series of informative keynotes, masterclasses, case studies and highly-interactive workshops conducted by esteemed experts will help attendees to gain insight into the complex world of impact investing and learn about the opportunities which could allow them to realize their maximum potential.

Further, young entrepreneurs will have the chance to pitch their very own business projects related to the event theme, with the winner receiving Youth Time’s Idea Grant to realize their idea!
