Investing to Change the World

At a time when climate change and social inequalities are a threat to our societies, impact investing is a way to help our world progress, while growing our economy. This Connection is a great introductory experience for any student interested in the environment, business, finance, or sociology. Join us to strengthen your foundational knowledge relating to financial literacy.

Connection activities will cover the following topics:
- Investing, startups and the stock market
- Entrepreneurship
- Impact investing as a way to make the world a better place while generating financial returns
- How to build an impactful startup and invest with impact

Note: this Connection will be hybrid, emphasizing student's participation in an interactive entrepreneurship project. This is an inclusive and educational experience for all students regardless of personal finances. No actual investing will take place.
