About this event

SPRING would like to invite investors and investment professionals to join this design workshop to explore the Why and How of investing in girls. Investing in girls is an emerging focus within impact investing and gender lens investing, and SPRING aims to catalyse more investment in girl-focused businesses in emerging markets through production of an investor toolkit. In this interactive session, SPRING Investment Director Suzanne Biegel and team will use human-centred approaches to gather your input to inform its design.

About SPRING: SPRING is a pioneering, human-centred-design-focused accelerator working with ventures in East Africa and South Asia that positively affect the lives of adolescent girls and young women, a project of DFID, Nike Foundation, USAID, and DFAT. To some, the 250 million adolescent girls living in poverty worldwide don’t make an obvious consumer base for profitable companies. But girls who have an opportunity to reach their full potential make vibrant local economies possible.
