About the Event
Catalytic Capital Case Study Learning Series
29 September, 11 October, 18 October 2023, 4:00 to 5:30 PM SGT (with an induction hour on 28 September)
Asia sees a growing number of untapped opportunities to support innovative solutions that address complex problems in underserved populations and underfunded sectors.
In response, a catalytic capital approach seeks to address these challenges with investments that are patient, risk-tolerant, concessionary, and flexible in ways that differ from conventional investment, with the ability to de-risk and mobilise additional investment from mainstream investors.
Be part of a case study learning series with funders and investors. Together, learn how you are able to ensure the additionality of your capital, address issues on the ground, and achieve your return objectives. Dig deeper on how it is well-placed to build proofs-of-concept, scale, and sustain the development of ground-breaking solutions which other funds might deem too risky.
