Impact Leaders with Eva Andriyash | Florian Kemmerich

Let’s meet the speakers for the IxD Capital section on "Innovation Day" of the Digital Week Online

May 27th, 2020 during the "Innovation Day" of the Digital Week Online IxD Capital will hold a section on Impact Investment and Innovation.

The section’s key speakers are representatives of the top impact funds and organizations — leaders who, through their actions, create a new history and new sustainable financial system which values not only financial, but financial, human, and natural capital in balance.

Meet Florian Kemmerich — Managing Partner at Bamboo Capital Partners:

Florian’s personal leitmotif is "Impact Lives, Share Profits".

Florian supports society and world economy by sharing his extensive background on fundraising, managing investment, and positive business transformations.

These highly impact-oriented courses of action promote the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, as well as provide solutions to the most pressing challenges of today, such as building communities' well-being, ending poverty, economic integration, global warming, mass migration, and pandemics.

Florian works in close cooperation with the World Bank, the UN, governments, international NGOs, and private and institutional investors to fund, back and scale impact-oriented companies.

It is not easy to define impact investment in ways that it has lived and has sometimes been misused — but the market is maturing, and a lot of effort has been put into standardizing the field and ensuring proper principles. It is important to ensure that impact investment is really about impact, and not just sustainability or ESG.

Impact investing is living through a very exciting and pivotal moment right now, and not only because its recognition and scale are growing, but also because its positive impact on communities becomes more and more evident. Impact investing should ultimately not just "teach a man how to fish", but support businesses in their efforts to generate profit while bettering the world.
