In addition, Intermedia will acquire a 25% stake in IAP and contribute capital and resources.
Commenting on the development, Alex Feher, Founder and CEO of IAP, said: “We are excited about partnering with Intermedia and how our combined strengths will help to catalyse our business for the benefit of the impact investing sector. This is the injection of additional operational capacity at just the right time to take the Summit and our planned suite of community offerings to the next level, enabling us to pursue our prime purpose to mobilise community and capital for the benefit of people and the planet and driving wisdom, courage and action”.
IAP has scheduled the next Impact Investment Summit Asia Pacific in October 2021 at the International Convention Centre, Sydney as a hybrid event of digital and face-to-face experiences. Ahead of that, there will be a series of online convenings and the ImpactConnect Funds Day in May 2021.
