An inspiring workshop on tech4impact took place at Hogan Lovells Start-up Summit 2023 in Berlin on 25th May, 2023! Four BIII members – Rene Wienholtz from LOOM IMPACT, Alice Hohenlohe and Toba Spiegel from Trill Impact, Bernd Klosterkemper from Ananda Impact Ventures and Zoé Constantin, CFA from IMPACT Partners – discussed the potential and limitations of investments in tech to create impact.
Some of the main findings were:
- Tech4Impact is not only climate or green tech but also health tech, ed tech, social tech,…
- Technology, be it software or hardware, is an important part of impact VCs
- The importance of venture debt will increase
- Technological innovations are not necessarily the best solution for all challenges of our time.
