Here Is Your Opportunity to Join the Impact in Tech Revolution
Meet speakers and investors, check the latest trends in our industry.
Hello Impact Nation,
There is a famous leadership quote:
“Hardly anything worth doing can be done alone.”
No matter if you’ve heard this quote (too) many times, or today for the first time. It works!
Impact investing is relatively new, and it’s hard to get serious updates.
It’s hard to find dedicated investors.
It’s hard to know the latest (real) trends in the industry.
That’s why – every year since 2019 – the Impact Nation meets at EXPANSE, the annual global summit for impact investing in tech.
This year, 800+ people have already joined Expanse Summit.
And here is a gift for you.
The event is online, and … it’s tomorrow (30 March 2022).
If you haven’t already joined, this may be your last chance.
But why should I join? – You ask!
If you have never been part of Expanse Summit in the past – and you are not one of the 850+ people who will be there this year – here is what you are missing:
1) 8x Amazing Speakers and Investors
Monique Morrow, senior distinguished architect at Syniverse – will reveal the top emerging technologies for organizations in 2022
Russ Show CBE, founder of Tech London Advocates and Global Tech Advocate – will share how to make an impact through ecosystem building and angel investing.
Olivia Siboby, CEO and co-founder of SeedTribe, The Angel Network – will uncover the must-have mindset to win the impact investing game.

2) A Unique Annual Event for Impact Investing.
Once the admission closes (in a few hours), there will be no more events this year.
3) 50 Trillion More Reasons to Join
… or should I have said $50 trillion (with a dollar sign)? Here is what Bloomberg announces about our topic:
4) And, of course, me (Elisa)
I’ll be the proud host of the event.
Join from the comfort of your house or office. The event is online.
