How do we link incentives to impact? Impact investors have been circling around this topic for quite a while. The first thought that typically comes to mind is linking a fund manager’s carried interest to impact. Also, when asked how to bake impact incentives into investments, most professionals jump right into the topic of impact bonds. But how can we directly incentivise the entrepreneurs on the ground and encourage them to achieve more impact? This session was hosted by Martijn Blom, EVPA & Laura Catana, FASE.

We often fall prey to the unrealistic search of unicorns in the impact space. But aren’t most impact ventures actually zebras that are rarely able to provide a 10x exit opportunity? So how can we rethink exits for zebras in a way that avoids mission drift, while remunerating investors for taking the risks? In this session, we discovered uncharted territory with different exit scenarios that include – but are far from being limited to – the typical VC exit route. The hosts of this session were Kristin Siegel, TONIIC & Christoph Rohde, FASE.
