It’s already been 5 years since we got together around a crazy idea: to create a citizen and impact investment fund, where collective intelligence would be king and with social entrepreneurship as the only guide 🧭 In October 2017, Citizenfund was launched!

5 years later, we want to take the time to thank you for the path we have taken, dear cooperators, dear supporters.

For this, we invite you on 15 November to attend the play “A Unicorn in the Room” (in French), which will be followed by a small debriefing and, above all, an aperitif! More information about the play can be found at the bottom of this page.

 

The event

15 November at 6pm, in Brussels (venue to be confirmed)

Then comes the regulator (state/government), a slightly outdated policeman who proposes to bring order to this fauna. The show ends with a call for help from Etienne asking the audience to put order together in “Alice’s room”, symbol of the world to come, by pleading for a more ethical and sustainable finance.
