With ten years of practice behind them, venture philanthropy and social investment organisations are starting to build valuable experience on exits. Building on those learnings and insights, the EVPA Knowledge Centre shared best practices on exits collected in the recent report “How to plan and execute an impactful exit” and Ferd Social Entrepreneurs shared their experience managing exits.
The webinar addressed issues related to exit planning and management as well as how to sustain the social impact you have helped to create once your partnership ends.
