About this event

The ESSEC Finance Department is delighted to invite you to the Second Vegan Finance Webinar that will take place on Friday, June 24, 2022.

We are witnessing an impressive increase in the global vegan market.

This market expects even stronger growth in the years to come.

It should not be forgotten that this vegan wave must support animal welfare, counter climate change, and contribute to the preservation of the environment. From a financial point of view, it is important to question the specificities of vegan business, and the range of financing solutions. Finally, and more than all, what are the reasons for the attraction of investors to vegan businesses and what are the expected returns on animal-free investments?
