Diogo will be joining the Roshem Regeneration Summit to speak about Impact Investing in Angola.

Angola offers significant potential worth exploring: more than 30 million individuals representing a tremendous pool of human talent. Impact investing, which offers investors a triple bottom-line return: financial, environmental and social, is still quite new in the country, while nevertheless the approach can be a great long-term profit driver. To support the informal economy, which represents 60% Angola’s GDP, with solid foundations for meaningful growth, there is a need to have an holistic and regenerative approach to developing a value chain that is inclusive of all stakeholders.
