FALL 2018 Event - Coming Soon
Stay tuned for further details!
Toronto International Microfinance Summit is Canada’s Premier Microfinance Event focused on domestic and international microfinance. We shine light on important issues and bring people together for important conversations. Our vision is a world without poverty through microfinance; our mission, to hold an annual event to that end.
In our most recent event, "Muhammad Yunus and Social Business: What is the Opportunity for Indigenous & Underrepresented Communities", we delivered a special evening with global icon, Muhammad Yunus. Microfinance is evolving to financial inclusion; and now, social business. Delegates joined in on the conversation to learn and discuss how Professor Yunus' vision of social business - a new dimension to capitalism - could help Indigenous and underrepresented communities thrive.
