How can the impact movement create inclusive prosperity across Latin America that is driven by social and environmental sustainability? According to Agora Partnerships, a leading impact organization focused on the LatAm region, “Entrepreneurship is fundamental to human progress. In order to meet the UN Sustainable Development Goals – to challenge global inequality, fight extreme poverty, and protect our planet – we need to unlock entrepreneurial potential at scale.”

In this Building an Impact Economy Webinar Series panel discussion, Impact Entrepreneur welcomes Agora’s CEO Cecilia Foxworthy and representatives from several of their many field-building partners to discuss the landscape of impact entrepreneurship and impact economy building in Latin America. The panel will highlight some of the most exciting entrepreneurial ventures that are addressing the SDGs, as well as some of the visionary leaders and organizations that are collaborating to create a vibrant and supportive ecosystem for impact enterprises to flourish.
