The Community Development Venture Capital Alliance Conference will be held on Thursday and Friday, March 17 and 18, at the Washington Plaza Hotel.  The CDVCA Annual Conference is the premier training and networking event for anyone interested in developmental venture capital, including social venture capital and impact investment fund managers, emerging fund managers, investors, economic development professionals, foundation officers, government officials, and other policy makers.

An Introductory Training Workshop precedes the Conference on Wednesday, March 16. 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.
