Non-profit organisations with an innovative approach generally receive too little strategic funding to foster their scaling strategy and to amplify their impact.


Epic Foundation, LAFO, PwC Luxembourg, Handicap International and JustDiggit are joining forces on the subject of philanthropy and impact investment to propose a meaningful event – the first of its kind in Luxembourg – on Thursday 7 March 2024.

While the opportunities for impact projects are numerous, most potential investors are still held back by three obstacles: a lack of confidence, time and knowledge.

Alexandre Mars, Founder & CEO of Epic Foundation and blisce/, will give an insightful interview led by Pascal Rapallino (LAFO President) before being joined on stage by Marjolein Albers, CEO of JustDiggit and Mehdi Magha, General Director at Handicap International Luxembourg for a panel discussion moderate by Francis Parisis (Managing Director, PwC).

This event will offer private and institutional investors, as well as private wealth professionals, the opportunity to hear about best practices and acquire the tools to understand the venture capital and philanthropy sectors, in order to identify and invest in meaningful projects with a high societal and environmental impact, and to understand how to provide financial support to NGOs more efficiently.

The conference will be closed with a presentation explaining how to structure Impact Investments, by Begga Sigurdadottir (Tax Partner at PwC).
