Event Date: 
Wednesday, February 22, 2017 at 1pm US EST / 10am US PST / 6pm UTC

There has been a lot of talk about impact investing as a source of funding for marine conservation priorities. What is impact investing? How does it work, and what can managers do to attract impact investors to fund their projects?

Join us for a webinar with Kelly Wachowicz, Managing Partner of Catch Invest, an impact investing firm supporting fishermen, conservation, and communities. Kelly will talk about investing to support sustainable fisheries and fisheries transitions and share several case studies that highlight some of the opportunities and challenges with this emerging funding tool.
