"Interesting and provocative conference covering a lot of ground. Post-panel table discussions were a nice way to debrief and network."

"The speakers were tremendous. Each speaker provided very valuable information. I appreciated the moderator asking that the speakers not use acronyms. Being new to the nonprofit world, I appreciated that a lot."

"I have a better understanding of the different titles and forms of social investing than previously and could envision a multi-layered approach to selected programs either in pilot stage or being considered."

"Some real thought leaders were panelists. Impressive array of speakers. I gained a deeper understanding of where the social enterprise movement is going and the various forms of impact investing."

"Wonderful--you acquired some stellar, visionary leaders who were inspiring."

"I loved the televising format, giving us up close access to the presenters. I loved that I was challenged with all the information about impact investing. As a non-profit institution, we have some limited experience with impact investing structures/processes through New Market Tax Credits (successful) and NEA-Our Town (not successful). I learned the new forms of philanthropy are not to be considered a funding life-boat, but an additional tool we to which we have access, remembering always that more traditional tools are often still the best ones to have around and use. I learned about funder/fundee relationships, and that they take a lot of effort and bold persistence."
