Capitalize for Kids Investors Conference

TORONTO, ON, August 8th, 2023: On October 18th and 19th, over 450 senior professionals from across the alternative investment industry will come together at The Carlu in Toronto for two full days of engaging content, robust idea generation, and productive networking. While firms are focused on advancing their business objectives, these professionals also gather to support the state of youth mental services across Canada. All proceeds from the Capitalize for Kids (C4K) Investors Conference are deployed by the organization’s Impact Team, which focuses on improving the accessibility of youth mental health services in Canada. Since its inception, C4K has raised over $15 million for the cause, and hopes that the 10th anniversary conference will bring more resources to a sector that needs support more than ever.

This year’s anniversary celebration is set to be Capitalize for Kids’ biggest and most impactful Investors Conference yet. Lucia Liscio, Managing Director, Business Development, comments “After 10 years, it is wonderful to see this caliber of speakers on our stage, many of whom return year after year”. Highlights include a record number of keynote addresses delivered by industry legends, including David Rubenstein from The Carlyle Group, Paul Singer from Elliot Investment Management, Carla Harris from Morgan Stanley, and Mellody Hobson from Ariel Investments, amongst others. This year the conference also provides diverse content in the form of best ideas pitches, and thematic panels including real estate, global macro, private credit, and AI. Building on the success of last year, the conference will include a robust Capital Introduction Program powered by iConnections’ platform.
