On 28 September, EBAN Board Member and Impact Committee Chair, Hedda Pahlson-Moller (pictured in the middle), together with Cécile Sevrain, Operational Manager at EIIC spoke during Amsterdam Capital Week at the Capital Impact event. The talk and panel discussion also included Anneke Sipkens (Doen), Warner Philips (Social Impact Ventures NL), Maarten de Jong (Oneplanetcrowd) and Stefan Lohuis (Rabobank), and was moderated by Tatiana Glad (Impact Hub Amsterdam). Amsterdam Capital Week took place on 26-30 September with a program of over 25 events, focusing on connecting all types of capital with both national and international startups and fast-growing scale-up companies.
Kaline van Halder and Alexander Bongers of Crosswise Works, the producers of Capital Impact, made the following comment regarding the participation of EBAN Impact representatives in the event:
“Hedda (Pahlson-Moller) and Cécile (Sevrain) from Tiime and the EBAN Impact Investing Committee were honored guests of Capital Impact, the flagship event on impact investing during Amsterdam Capital Week 2016. Firstly, they were just incredibly nice and very accessible. Next to that, we’d like to sincerely thank Hedda for her willingness to provide the audience some insight on what being a business angel is all about, as many business angels prefer to stay under the radar. Her approach to impact investing, as being value creation in its truest form, surely has inspired all delegates. Many were fascinated by her stories, which also had to do with her communication skills. She certainly is the expert, but she also knows how to package it. Long story short: truly inspiring person who’s doing truly inspiring stuff! Hopefully we can work alongside more often.”
EIIC was honored to have participated in such a successful event and looks forward to being part of Amsterdam Capital Week again in the future.
