Webinar - how philanthropists & investors are bringing hope & transformation to lives in East Africa.
There is nothing quite like the dignity that comes with a good job. Join this online webinar to learn how philanthropists and investors are bringing hope and transformation to thousands of lives by supporting businesses that create and sustain jobs in East Africa.

From building deal flow by equipping early and growth stage entrepreneurs through Sinapis to impact investing in high potential businesses through Talanton, you can empower faith-driven entrepreneurs to help lift thousands of people out of poverty, stand against corruption, and boost the economy. Most importantly, entrepreneurs are making a measurable spiritual impact through evangelism, discipleship and social impact initiatives.

You’ll hear the story of how Sinapis and Talanton worked together to accelerate and invest in Rabboni, a profitable and scalable business in Uganda with 2,300 farmers plus 26 full-time employees and 41 seasonal workers.
Online - Faith Driven Investor Live
Faith Driven Investors are scattered all around the world. On top of that, a global pandemic has disconnected us even more. In a season that defaults to loneliness, we’re craving to bring people together again.

The day will represent the best content from leaders across all different asset classes of the Faith Driven Investor Movement—including Private Equity, Real Estate, Emerging Economies, Public Markets, and more.

Investors are gathering in 100 cities across the globe, and you're invited to join others who are on your same journey. Whether this conference serves as your first step or merely a rest stop, you are a part of a movement...and it's growing.

You’re busy, so we’ve made it easy. Find a screen. Find a space. Find a friend (or maybe two), and we'll bring the food.
