Financing the 21st Century
Investment, Infrastructure and Innovation
Through candid, high-level discussions, GLOBE Capital explores how to mobilize and accelerate the capital necessary to sustain our communities, transform our infrastructure, and future-proof our economy.
Delegates will discover tools and approaches for capitalizing on the opportunities in the clean economy – how to scale-up clean innovation and deal flow, reduce risk, and move money into the emerging economy.
Discussion topics include:
Traditional Sectors in Transition
Carbon-intensive companies will continue to play a key role as we transition to a clean economy. What types of investment, infrastructure, and technology are required to help these companies make the shift? What would make these types of companies or infrastructure projects more attractive for investors?
Many cleantech firms struggle with scaling their solutions – in particular, accessing financing once they are no longer eligible for government grants. GLOBE Capital will convene cleantech and financial institutions with a view to co-creating mechanisms that direct larger capital deals towards cleantech companies.
Decarbonizing Infrastructure: Investing in Climate Resilience
GLOBE Capital will address the opportunities and market barriers to de-risk investment, and how we can scale both institutional and private investments in resilient infrastructure.
The Power of Partnerships
Accelerating the deployment of solutions that address societal, environmental and economic challenges will require innovative partnerships, business models, and financing mechanisms. GLOBE Capital will introduce some of the most interesting examples of creative partnership development, share thought leadership on what’s next, and dig into the challenges to uncover solutions.
Bringing Institutional Investors into Low-carbon Deal Flow
To bring smaller, innovative firms and large institutional investors together, they must better understand their respective investment criteria and thresholds. US banks are already moving on this front. GLOBE Capital will explore whether Canadian commercial banks can engage at an earlier stage, as well as consider the next pension fund technology platform play.
The program schedule will be available in October 2018.
