“We had a record number of nominations this year which clearly shows the dynamic growth in the impact sector. We expect even further amplification as Impact Investing becomes more mainstream.” said Alex Feher, co-founder of the Impact Investment Summit.

The event offered a welcome opportunity for the impact community to come together, with keynote presentation from The Hon Amanda Rishworth MP, Minister for Social Services.
“We need new approaches and new models of public and private partnerships because government is not, and cannot, be the only source of ideas that can deliver and scale innovative community solutions. I’m proud to lead an organisation that embraces and supports impact investing as a key component of how government, business, the NFP and community sectors work together to create a better future for all Australians.”
Founder and CEO of the Social Impact Hub Jessica Mendoza-Roth said:
“We received a record number of nominations for the Awards this year. The calibre of applications was outstanding, reflective of the continued momentum within the impact investment space and the brilliant professionals committed to elevating the sector in Australia.”
