Impact Investing in Place

October 25 @ 12:00 pm - 6:00 pm


Upstate Capital is hosting an event designed to introduce and highlight several approaches to place-based investing, including for-profit and non-profit seed funding models and the new Opportunity Zones program.

Place-based impact investing is investing that is designed to combine financial returns with positive economic and/or environmental impacts in specific locations. This type of investment has long been the purview of economic development organizations, but shifts in ownership of capital and availability of methods and opportunities for investing that capital, have given rise to new organizations and approaches that complement economic development, through organizations like the Hudson Valley Startup Fund locally.

  • What are best practices and lessons learned from these investment models?   

  • How is access to capital evolving to support starting and growing businesses across the region?
