Dear Friends of IFB,
As we are approaching the end of the Start-Up year for IFB, we can only reflect in gratitude for all support we received from many individuals and many organizations that are eager to increase and improve impact finance in Belgium.
In this last edition of 2023, we will highlight some of the main achievements of IFB, with the Impact Day as the most visible event. That day, IFB also shared its first Research publication and its first Impact Barometer. Both were well received and a clear incentive for us to follow up on these documents and to venture into other research topics.
Outside Belgium, IFB is in good touch with other parties promoting and supporting impact finance. We also collaborated on providing input to relevant new European regulation.
Just a few weeks ago the IFB board discussed and approved a strategy document for the next three years, and a separate work plan for 2024. It makes very concrete what we plan to do under the four pillars of Enable, Inspire, Connect and Catalyze. Information on these topics will constantly be updated on our brand-new website: impactfinance.be
In your 2024 calendars, please mark Wednesday 17 January, when IFB will host the next Members’ Talk at the Impact House (start at 17.30). This will be followed by the IFB New Year’s drinks (as from 18.30). And, please mark Monday 11 March, when IFB will speak at the monthly Impact Monday, also at the Impact House (start at 18.30). More events will follow.
Over the next days or weeks, I hope many of you will be able to take a step back and devote time to your dear-ones, to then wish you all the best for 2024.
Enjoy reading and keep generating your impact!
Frederik and the IFB team
