Investment Turnaround Summit 2017
Press and Media

Thank you for you interest in the Investmentwende.

In this section you can enjoy some mementos from the historical launch of both the large report by the Club of Rome „Come on!” (German title “Wir sind dran” by the Gütersloher Verlagshaus) and the Investmentwende, the investors’ call to action.

Investors in Dialogue with the Club of Rome

Praise for the Investment Turnaround Gala Dinner

Dear Mariana, you appealed very eloquently for the investment turnaround.

Prof. Dr. Ernst-Ulrich von Weizsäcker, Co-president Club of Rome International

The [Investors' Dialogue with the Club of Rome] event was great and the same goes for the EBAN Winter Summit. I was very happy that we decided to do these events together! The Impact Investor Group - and I include the Business Angels here – is a terrific initiative - something very much needed. I sincerely hope we can build a strong relationship btw the Club of Rome and the organisations representing responsible investing!

Prof. Dr. Anders Wijkman, Co-president Club of Rome International

You and your team organized a super impactful event and I am honored that you asked me to participate.

Dr. Charly Kleissner, Co-founder Toniic

[Ich möchte] Dir und Euch für das wunderbare Gala Dinner vor einer Woche [...] danken. Ihr habt das mit großartigen Rednern, interessanten Gästen organisiert und mit köstlichem Essen garniert. Vielen herzlichen Dank für Dein leidenschaftliches Engagement für Impact Investing und weiterhin viel Erfolg!

Kerstin von Aretin, BMW Foundation Herbert Quandt

Dear Mariana, You did an extraordinary job. We admire you for that. And know that it was not easy, and often against all odds. But you succeeded and we are proud of you and hope to be able to count on more great contributions like this from you. Remember that EBAN members stated that this was the most inspiring meeting of the business angels ever . ..  and that is your contribution. We should nurture this relation and pursue it. There are several members that are following up with the 3 projects I have presented and are actively investing!
