imfino city talks

In October 2017, imfino launched a new invitation-only event series with inspiring talks on impact investing: “imfino city talks”. The intention is to get visionary people, both from the local and international community, on stage to share their stories and approaches with the audience as well as showcasing sustainable entrepreneurs and their passion for developing solutions and innovation for today's cities.

The target audience includes city authorities, strategic partners, media and – of course – impact entrepreneurs and investors. Video recording will supports post-event news and tracking of Q&A guarantees lessons learned as well as impact measurement of the event itself. All of this is combined with stakeholder networking accompanied by music and refreshments for a relaxing ambiance. These events always take place in the language of the city where imfino holds them.

Thank you all for attending our inaugural event! (24th October 2017)

For the launch event in Vienna, we were proud to host Charly Kleissner, the renowned Austria-born impact investor, and his wife Lisa as our key note speakers. They have both supported the development of the impact investing sector through the KL Felicitas Foundation and the co-founding of TONIIC, the global action community for impact investors.

We were happy to feature two social entrepreneurs Martin Wesian (Helioz) and Christoph Sackl (Firefly Club).

Helioz offers innovative and accessible solutions to improve everyday lives of those underserved by traditional markets. With its product WADI, a solar powered UV measurement device that visualizes the process of solar water disinfection, HELIOZ enables clean drinking water for the people.

The Firefly Club specialises in training people with learning disabilities to become professional DJs and helps to organise bookings for their DJs at mainstream events. The project tackles social exclusion and prejudges against people with disabilities and actively contributes to an inclusive society through empowering a marginalized group and highlighting their musical talents.
