The EVPA Annual Conference is the premier event of the year on venture philanthropy and social investment in Europe, attracting around 500 delegates annually.

The conference brings together a variety of players, including social investors, donors, foundations, private equity organisations, advisory firms, private banks, academic institutions and some selected social entrepreneurs. Recognised experts and practitioners identified by an international conference committee lead the various debates, panels and round tables.
