Paul Robinson is a serial social entrepreneur who believes business, done well, is the greatest source of potential positive change in the world. His keynote address will take you on a journey from his early insights, and how one game of football can change your life, through the story of One water and the building of a social enterprise that has given 4 million people clean drinking water to Alquity, his fund management business that is proving that how we deploy our capital shapes our societies – delivering great returns whilst also transforming lives. Paul has been involved in delivering over $25m of donations to help lift people out of poverty, all done via business, not charity. If you want to believe that capitalism can be a force for good, if you want to understand how your investments can make a difference, delivering financial and social, then come and be inspired.
That TerraCycle US, Inc. is the US leader in collecting and recycling hundreds of waste streams that otherwise end up in landfills, incinerators and oceans.
How TerraCycle engages brands, retailers, municipalities and retailers in the process of collecting scores of waste streams—including pens, toothbrushes, candy wrappers, juice pouches, cigarette butts, lipstick, contact lenses, child car seats and even dirty diapers.
Why Brands and end-users pay TerraCycle a sufficient price to cover the true cost of recycling (plus margin); its programs generate large public awareness and engagement, resulting in tangible benefits (ROI) to its clients.
That TerraCycle’s business is profitable and growing both organically and through acquisition.
How, over the past 18 months, over 900 investors have invested approximately $10 million into TerraCycle US Inc., that the $25 million capital raise is already 40% sold, that the proceeds will principally fund growth through acquiring companies that TerraCycle believes will thrive on its unique recycling eco-system.
That the capital raise is an SEC qualified offering, independent audits, third party fact checks, paid 2% dividend in 2019.
