About the Event

Understand the dichotomy

In this unique workshop on the 15th of November with Urs Wietlisbach, we will explore together the essence of this frequently pronounced phrase. With Urs Wietlisbach as our workshop participant, we have a proven expert who, among other noteworthy activities, has created an independent global impact investment firm with the initiation of Blue Earth Capital in 2015. In collaboration with Prof. Dr. Martin Nerlinger, Professor of Finance at the HSG, and the Sustainable Investment Club, this workshop will explore the most exciting aspects of impact investing interactively with you. During the workshop, there will be the opportunity for questions, concluding with a Q&A session. Don’t miss the opportunity to actively engage in a vibrant discussion about to what extent finance can generate an impact. We are looking forward to welcoming you!
