BLOXHUB MORNINGS: CITIES AS IMPACT INVESTMENT

Date(s): 
Thursday 30.11.2017
Location: 
Event Room, Fæstningens Materialgård, Frederiksholms Kanal 30, 1220 Copenhagen.

November 30: BLOXHUB mornings is an inspiring series of events focusing on innovation and growth within the field of architecture, construction, urban development and design. This time: turning public needs into private investment opportunities.

Cities grapple with major challenges of allocating the needed funds towards climate adaption, transition to renewable energy, social challenges linked to urbanization. 

Effective public-private partnerships in the form of Impact investment promise to catalyze additional private capital flows into public investments and stimulate private sector development, and even transferring economical risk from the public to the private sector. The concept of Impact Investment has gained enormous traction within the last 5 years based on the notion that societal needs and challenges can be addressed in more effective and scalable ways, through innovative and mixed finance, than it is achievable by the public sector alone.

At this event we ask if Impact Investment is yet another buzz word, or is it set to revolutionize the relationship and outcomes of public/private collaboration? And, how does impact investment fit into a Danish urban development context?
