“This Trade Mission is a good poortunity to share experiences on growing impact investing markets both in the US and Nordics,” expressed Sami Tuhkanen Director at Sitra.

“Using the power of finance and markets to tackle the most difficult social and environmental problems has the potential to transform our societies. The Nordics offer a great source for impact investment and social innovation, and this Trade Mission is an important step to converting ideas into concrete actions and investment,” said Mette Lingaard, Partner & Global Public Sector Social Innovation Lead, Deloitte Denmark.

“The timing for the mission could not be better. Though Norwegian investors have long been active within socially responsible ventures, a mission probing actual impact – and real returns – is just now an acceptable point of departure,” said Jason Turflinger Managing Director at AmCham Norway.
