The CFA is soon launching the Conservation Finance Incubator - a new facility to provide virtual incubation services for innovation in conservation finance tools and solutions. The Incubator will support two potential tracks: 1) Commercial Ventures that seek to generate a financial return and 2) Finance Concepts that lead to policy, regulatory, or non-profit finance solutions. All solutions must be new ideas and show clear potential for conservation impact. Concepts can be from any sector (public, private, etc.) and can include ideas generated directly by CFA Members, partner organizations, and independent organizations and entrepreneurs. The CFA will announce a call for concepts shortly. The Conservation Finance Incubator is supported by FFEM and MAVA Foundation.
We are pleased to announce that on November 15th, 2018 at 11am EDT we will have an online meeting to relaunch our Innovation Working Group. Hosted by Chair Ray Victurine, the meeting will cover the CFA Incubator as well as have a discussion around specific interests of the group for future activities.
Please RSVP on the Innovation Working Group page.
