Event Description

Venture capitalist Zoey McKenzie recently launched a $100 million impact fund called Public Ventures that seeks out science and clean tech startups focused on improving health equity and climate preparedness for underserved communities. In this session, Zoey will discuss impact investing and how it aims to generate positive social and environmental outcomes, along with financial returns. In this talk, you will also learn about the DECA Framework, a method that offers innovators, investors, and philanthropists a precise roadmap towards universal progress. You will discover the four essential pillars of the framework: Deal, Ecosystem, Community, and Application, and how they can help you achieve 10x (sustainable) impact while addressing complex global challenges, like climate change.
