Gino Borges is an investor in impact-driven companies, with an emphasis on social and ecological resilience. He is a partner at OpenPath Investments, which transforms ordinary apartment complexes into thriving communities via its Urban Village program.

Humanity is part of the evolutionary process
Lisa & Charly Kleissner – Co-founders of Toniic
Wednesday 20 October 2021, 12.30pm-1.30pm AEDT
We are delighted to present this Wisdom Circle in the form of an intimate fireside chat with impact investing pioneers, co-founders of Toniic, Lisa and Charly Kleissner, hosted by impact strategist, Rosemary Addis AM.
Lisa and Charly are not only treating the symptoms of our failing economic and financial system, but its root causes – with a level of awareness and consciousness that is non-anthropocentric, acknowledging that humanity is part of the evolutionary process, not outside of it.
They see impact investing not as an intellectual exercise, but as an expression of who they really are.
Impact Measurement that creates connection to purposeful intent
Lindsay Smalling – 60 Decibels
Tuesday 26 October 2021, 12.30pm-1.30pm AEDT
Impact measurement has the potential to more deeply connect investors to the impact they seek and provide actionable data for decision-making. Unfortunately, it is often perceived as an obligatory administrative burden. Central to unlocking the potential of impact measurement is centering the voice of end stakeholders to listen better. 60 Decibels has been refining their approach to understanding impact by listening to those who matter most for more than seven years and has conducted 150k+ surveys with end stakeholders in 40+ countries. Lindsay will share an overview of the insights and benchmarking being generated by gathering comparable impact outcomes data at scale, and open the discussion to the group on what is needed to increase practices of stakeholder engagement throughout the investment process.
Lindsay is the Head of US Sales at 60 Decibels, a tech-enabled impact measurement company using (mostly) phone-based surveys to listen better to end customers and beneficiaries around the world. Prior to 60 Decibels, she was CEO of SOCAP, convening social entrepreneurs, impact investors, and cross-sector leaders through world-renowned events at the intersection of money and meaning. Lindsay was previously Strategic Initiatives Officer at ImpactAssets, consulted on corporate social responsibility programs at Entrepreneurs Foundation, and started her career in financial services at Wellington Management and Lord Abbett. Lindsay graduated from Pomona College, where she was a Division III National Champion in water polo, and has an MBA from Columbia Business School. She lives in San Francisco with her husband and twin daughters.
