HL BaSE has teamed up with Social Innovation Circle to run a series of webinars, aimed at assisting social ventures from its HL BaSE Training cohorts in business expansion and funding acquisition.

“Social Innovation Circle is delighted to team up with Hogan Lovells to offer this cutting edge training in impact finance for social entrepreneurs. The insights that we share come directly from our work helping social start-up founders raise funding from mission aligned investors. We believe this content will be invaluable for non-profit and for-profit ventures alike.”

Mark Cheng, Founder, Social Innovation Circle

Social Innovation Circle is a community of social innovators that provides coaching and concepts necessary to raise blended finance.  The HL BaSE webinars are run by the founder Mark Cheng, together with his two co-founders, Anshul Magotra and Pauline Verhaeghe, who provide insights from their extensive experience in the impact investing space.

With a focus on equipping social enterprises with actionable insights and tactics, the webinars are designed to help social ventures grow and secure funding. On 8 February, the second webinar in the series provided a comprehensive overview of various funding sources, offering practical advice on how to identify and approach the right funders. Participants in the webinar shared their experiences with obtaining grants and investments, discussed the challenges they faced, and had the chance to ask Mark Cheng any questions concerning funding matters.

On 7 March 2024, HL BaSE will be hosting the third HL BaSE Training webinar with Social Innovation Circle. This interactive webinar will explore the art of pitching to impact funders, offering guidance on creating a compelling pitch, highlighting what makes a pitch unique, and discussing the key metrics that impact funders seek.
