Impact investing workshop with the peruvian Incubator HUB Udep
Last week, we had the pleasure of giving a workshop to a group of Peruvian startups. They are currently following an accelerator program with HUB Udep, the incubator of the University of Piura, in collaboration with Telefónica - Open Future.
Our co-founder Itamar Ahrenbeck discussed financial management best practices for startups, as well as the opportunity that impact investors represent for companies in Latin America. The conversation centred around what investors look for in a company, and how impact investors differ from pure financial investors
