BCC 2020 Save the Date!
After two very successful Business of Conservation Conferences, we are happy to announce that the next Business of Conservation Conference will take place from September 1st to 3rd, 2020 at the Kigali Convention Center in Kigali, Rwanda. Register here to secure your slot! It will be more powerful and action-oriented than ever as we delve even deeper into newer dimensions of environmental investing aimed at catalyzing economic development in Africa.
At the end of this year's conference, we received nearly $11 million in commitments, facilitated investment opportunities for businesses featured in the Leopard's Cove, 11 different deal room meetings took place showcasing millions of potential deals with potential investors/projects and launched discussions that will continue throughout the year. You can see more figures from the conference in the summary report attached here. You can also remind yourself of the great memories we made here, and watch the livestream videos here.
We hope that the connections made will grow stronger and that discussions about making conservation a growth industry become bigger and bolder. If you'd like to share how you're implementing lessons from the conference or updates from connections made at BCC, please share via the conference website. We would be happy to hear about tangible outcomes from the conference.
