Make your Money Matter
Join the Impact Shakers Microfund and help to finance businesses with a positive impact on people and planet.
The Microfund exists to:
Provide capital and expertise to exceptional diverse impact founders who don’t have friends & family with tens of thousands of Euros to spare to invest in their venture at the early stage
Create an inclusive community of diverse change makers and Impact Shakers, who would like to put their money where their values are
"This Impact Shakers Summit allows impact players -or shakers as you call them - to exchange and meet. That’s essential because YOU are the ones creating the economy of tomorrow and, it is together that we will make our dream become the reality of tomorrow."
Secretary of State of the Brussels-Capital Region, responsible for Economic Transition and Scientific Research

CELEBRATE & SHOWCASE

There are so many impressive impact businesses in Europe, let’s give them the right stage to share and accelerate their growth!
AMPLIFY & BUILD
It is time to join forces! Startups, investors, academia, corporate & governmental impact leaders will link up with each other.

let’s make waves together
Impact Leaders Roundtables
In order to realise the economic transition, we need to build the impact infrastructure that will enable this transition.
We will need to not only invest in and work on the “sexy”, visible solutions like sustainable energy and modes of transport, we will also need to build an operational structure that is rooted in inclusive entrepreneurship and inclusive partnerships across verticals that represent the “operations department” of the economy
Impact Capital contributes actively to solutions for some of the world’s most pressing challenges and offers financial as well as impact returns.
The spectrum of impact capital solutions is growing rapidly and impact investors are at the forefront of capital innovation.
New instruments are being created at a high pace and by changing how financing
works they are contributing to systemic change.
New economic thinking leads the way to regeneration. To accelerate the transition to the new economy, we need to integrate new thinking like doughnut economics, regenerative economy, climate financing, sustainability, circular economy, impact measurement and management, wellbeing, diversity, equity and inclusion and many more into the way we build businesses.
It is no longer enough to not do harm, we need to actively work on regeneration.
