Coffey development experts will be attending the upcoming Social Capital Markets event, known as SOCAP, to be held in San Francisco this week. SOCAP17 brings together thousands of impact investors, entrepreneurs and cross-sector practitioners all dedicated to increasing the flow of capital for social good.
Coffey’s development specialist Keith Tuckwell will be discussing the new impact investment market Facility operating in the Pacific. Pacific RISE (Pacific Readiness for Investment in Social Enterprise) is an initiative of the Australian Government, designed and managed by Coffey’s international development team.
As specialists in aid and development in the Pacific, Coffey ensures that Pacific RISE supports impact investing partners including investment funds, intermediaries and businesses capable of delivering financial and social returns.
Coffey manages Pacific RISE with the support of the Criterion Institute to promote gender lens investing. We are all committed to moving beyond merely counting women to understanding their contributions and influences in the business cycle. Pacific RISE is assisting to unpack and confirm why investing in women, is good for business, and a good investment.
Coffey recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Pacific Trade Invest Australia (PTI Australia) to formalise an existing relationship which enables the two organisation to share resources to find Pacific businesses seeking new capital and connect them to investors seeking deals. This new partnership is already working hard to combine efforts and resources across the Pacific. Caleb Jarvis from PTI Australia will be with Keith and the Coffey team at SOCAP 2017.
Follow the conversation on Twitter @CoffeyIntDev, #SOCAP17, #PacificRISE #ImpactInvesting from 11 to 13 October.
