The logjam in fundraising for CDVC funds seems to have broken in the past year, as both experienced and first-time fund managers are having success raising new funds.  The logjam in Washington is, unfortunately, still intact.  But much is going on under the surface.  Programs important to CDVC funds, such as the CDFI Fund, New Markets Tax Credit, and SBA Impact Fund, have done surprisingly well in the political process recently, despite the rancor in Congress, as those on both sides of the aisle continue to recognize the importance for our nation of creation of good jobs.  And issues of inequality are back on the national agenda, opening up new possibilities for our industry.

 Register now for CDVCA’s 2014 Annual Conference, the premier training and networking event for impact investors providing equity capital to rapidly-growing, job creating businesses.  Those who attend will get a chance to speak with industry leaders and government officials about issues that are currently affecting our industry.  Our goal is to ensure that participants walk away with a better idea of how to achieve tangible results for their own organizations.

The Community Development Venture Capital Alliance 2014 Annual Conference will be held on Thursday and Friday, March 13 and 14, at the Embassy Suites Washington, DC Convention Center. The Annual Conference is the premier training and networking event for anyone interested in developmental venture capital.

An Introductory Training Workshop precedes the Conference on Wednesday, March 12. This one-day workshop provides an overview of the industry and practice of community development venture capital (CDVC) investing. Attending this event provides an in-depth look at leading funds and best practices in the industry, and serves as the ideal entry point to the Conference and the industry.
