TOA ON AIR x Leaps Talk: Measuring what matters in impact investing
Dec 2, 5:00PM - 6:15PM
Much of the world is getting richer - but are we also getting happier?
Join us on Wednesday December 2nd for a special episode of TOA ON AIR in collaboration with Leaps by Bayer. Introducing Meik Wiking, CEO of The Happiness Research Institute, Agate Freimane, General Partner at Norrsken VC, Europe's largest impact venture capital fund and your Moderator: Britt Wray, broadcaster and author of Rise of the Necrofauna: The Science, Ethics and Risks of De-Extinction.
While wealth may be on the rise - so are sea levels, air pollution, cancer rates, and mental health disorders. Despite continued economic growth, it seems we sometimes fail to convert our wealth into wellbeing.
So where should we invest our resources to improve quality of life? If we could choose between breakthrough innovations that could fundamentally change the world for the better, which one should we choose - and how do we ensure better metrics for better investments?
Join us on December 2nd and 4pm CET - register here for FREE!
Following the talk, we will host an extensive Q&A session with the speakers - so prepare your notes and join us for a noteworthy conversation!
