Our Director of Ventures, Anna Smee, will be speaking at this year’s Good Deals Social Investment Conference. The conference will be running three strands – one designed for social ventures, one aimed at investors and intermediaries and the ‘Breakthough Capitalism’ strand curated by Volans. This third strand explores how multinationals can create lasting impact and value, driving systemic change with breakthrough ventures. This programme is subject to change.

Anna Smee will be speaking at the “Are You Ready for this (Investment) Jelly?” panel at 10.30 am highlighted below. The full schedule can be found on the Good Deals website.
