Impact investors come in all shapes and sizes, and from all backgrounds including the world of poker. In 2014, Martin Jacobson won the World Series of Poker, the $10,000,000 prize was the fifth largest single payout in the history of the tournament. Nicolas Cardyn is also a professional poker player, as well as an investor in startups and the stock market, with lifetime winnings now exceeding $1,000,000. Both are now members of the ClearlySo Angels - the UK's leading group of high-net-worth individuals and families focused on creating social and environmental impact alongside financial return.
During this webinar, ClearlySo Head of Investor Relations Arti Bareja will interview Martin and Nicolas to discover what led them to impact investing, the types of impact they are most interested in, and discuss what angel investors should be looking out for when investing in early stage growth businesses.
