About this event

Registration is confirmed only upon receipt of confirmation email.

Conducting impact assessment is a necessary step for social investment. It is required by both the resource providers and beneficiaries to enforce accountability and to drive decisions.

Challenges remain, however, as there is no standard framework available. Impact assessment strategy and process varies, depending on the theory of change, time requirements, stage of development, and more.

This workshop, facilitated by SZC Holdings Limited, will focus on funding strategies tied to impact outcomes, stakeholders’ role in measuring impact, and real-life case studies. There will also be an emphasis on how technological innovation is an efficient and value co-creation mechanism for impact measurement.

Through presentations, case studies and discussions, participants will be able to:

  • Learn about data driven deal flow automation and mile stone capital deployment strategy;
  • Understand how Impact Learning™ leveraging AI (Artificial Intelligent) and IA (Intelligence Agent) lead to better impact assessment;
  • Discuss applications of decentralized technologies to facilitate inclusive economy and social finance;
  • Review case studies and discuss impact metrics and necessary modifications required across different countries.
