Our first two Latinos in Finance Coffee Chats were exceptionally educational, enlightening and motivating. Our next chat will highlight socially responsible and impactful investing; an area of investment finance that has a long history yet has more recently been a focus of many industry articles and the press. With several Latinos in Finance members dedicated to and passionate about socially and environmentally responsible investing, we are excited to host Timothy Freundlich thisWednesday, April 15th from 3-4pm at ImpactHUB San Francisco (901 Mission St. at 5th St.). Tim Freundlich is President and Co-founder of ImpactAssets. He is also a Co-founder of Good Capital andMissionHUB.
To register, please email Latinos in Finance and Hernan Vargas with your full name, phone number, current firm and title, and anticipated questions. These coffee chats are informal, but private, and we will limit attendance to 30 individuals. We will confirm your reservation via email and do our best to manage a waiting list. If you are not able to attend this coffee chat or the registration is full, there will be several similar coffee chats this year.
The coffee chats will follow a consistent format where the guest speaker will review her/his personal background, career trajectory, and current role. Each coffee chat will last only one hour and most of the hour will be dedicated to questions from those in attendance. We anticipate the type of questions to range from career advice to forward-looking industry thoughts.
Please find Tim’s biography below. We look forward to your attendance.
