Meet the Impact Investors

by Jay Snider

On April 19, Palo Alto Software visited Portland State University to “Meet the Impact Investors” as part of the PSU Impact Entrepreneur Program.

The event and discussion revolved around the relationship between socially-responsible entrepreneurs and investors. The highly-qualified panel of experts included Kipp Baratoff of the Meyer Memorial Trust, Bill Campbell of  Equilibrium Capital Group, and Patrick Maloney of Imprint Capital Advisors. Each panel member shared insights from their experience investing in socially-responsible ventures.

The audience included students and faculty of PSU, investors and fund managers, event sponsors, entrepreneurs and members of the Oregon business community. There were guests in attendance from as far away as New York, Boston, and even Germany.

In the video below, Patrick Maloney shares his thoughts about how entrepreneurs can navigate the tricky investment-seeking waters.

Thank you to Cindy Cooper and PSU for being such gracious hosts.
