'The Tale of Two Cities -
Turning Rhetoric into Reality'
....................................................................
Host: Baruch College
Robert Zicklin Center
for Corporate Integrity

Income inequality is the topic of the day globally, throughout the nation and in New York City. What will it take to turn de Blasio's rhetoric into reality? Can he substantially improve life in New York City for the nearly 2 million residents living below the poverty line? Can he protect and restore the disappearing middle class? Can the Mayor accomplish all of this without alienating Wall Street and keep the city solvent and avoid a repeat of the catastrophic budget failures that have plagued the city's past? Join us on April 16th as the Sustainability Practice Network and Baruch College's Robert Zicklin Center for Corporate Integrity convene a panel to address these questions and more.

Anatomy of a Deal:
Financing Sustainable Food
....................................................................
Host: Slow Money Panel NYC

The Sustainability Practice Network and Slow Money NYC would like to invite you to a Panel Discussion entitled, "Anatomy of a Deal: Financing Sustainable Food," April 25, 2014 from 2:00 - 3:30 pm at The Wythe Hotel, 80 Wythe Street, Brooklyn, NY 11211 (Screening Room, Cellar Level).

This expert panel highlights a unique Case Study demonstrating how a sustainable food entrepreneur was able to successfully aggregate diverse funding from both Foundations and Investors. Central to the discussion will be an analysis of how entrepreneurs can address Three "E" Returns on Investment -- Equitable, Environmental and Economic -- to create the opportunity for this type of "integrated" financing for social enterprise. In a rare glimpse of how a collaborative financing deal has been put together, we have assembled all of the parties who made the transaction a success.
