Dear Friends and Colleagues,

Think globally but invest locally. Or…is this the other way around? Please join us for our upcoming Global LAVA monthly breakfast meeting on October 5th, which promises to be truly fascinating! As usual, our session is highly interactive so be ready to discuss the following three key topics:

  • Impact Investing & Social Entrepreneurship – can we make a good profit while making the world a better place?
  • Risk mitigation – what are some of the risks of investing in doing "good” overseas compared with local challenges?
  • Crowdfunding – is it a temporary trend or the next generation of entrepreneurial capital sourcing?

Please meet our distinguished guest speakers:
