Following-on from our first-round announcement last week, this is the final batch of high-impact funds and startups that will be pitching their wares at the event.
ImpactConnect is a live show-case, presenting the hottest impact enterprises that are all open for investment. They may be launching a fund, or raising a round for their social enterprise, but all the partner organisations have impact at their core.
The first session for 2022 will be held in conjunction with the Impact Summit. A high-energy event to prepare you for the broader Festival of Impact which starts next week!
The list of organisations are below, so get to know them, and get excited for the Festival of Impact.
It’s an opportunity to stay switched-on to open deals and current opportunities.
Sentient-Tiverton Forever Fund
Well-known renewable agriculture manager, Tiverton, is joining forces with Sentient Impact, a fund manager that was spun-out from Impact Investment Group (IIG).
The pair have signed a strategic partnership, and Nigel Sharp, CEO of Tiverton Agriculture, will be presenting the opportunity.
Together Sentient and Tiverton will acquire and develop a portfolio of Australian properties to regenerate farmland, sequester carbon at scale and restore damaged or destroyed native vegetation to create regionally significant biodiverse sanctuaries across Australia.
The partnership will invest in properties and apply sustainable practices that restore soil health, promote biodiversity, enhance natural capital and sequester terrestrial and soil carbon, at scale, through a combination of agro-forestry and regenerative agriculture practices.
The partnership has acquired a large property north of Albany in WA as a pure carbon play seed project that emphasises revegetating regrowth and native shrubs, and connecting with high value nature reserves to create regional corridors
