In their latest annual survey, the Global Impact Investing Network and J.P. Morgan reported a total of USD 77 billion in capital allocated to impact investing. This unparalleled potential of the impact investing market coupled with a social enterprise sector that is exceeding expectations in both growth and impact, has increased the demand to master the evolving legal and financial frameworks available to social enterprises and impact investment funds. Choosing a robust legal and financial structure for transactions is key to tapping into this potential, which is exactly what TrustLaw’s Social Enterprise & Impact Investing Training aims to facilitate.

Headed to San Francisco this September and returning to London in October, the course series combine hands-on legal training with practical case studies, enabling strategic discussions and the sharing of best practices in social entrepreneurship and impact investing.  By attending, delegates will become part of a community of practice and will take away invaluable know-how on optimal legal and financial structures that will be taught by academics, lawyers, social investors and social entrepreneurs themselves.
