Opportunity Appalachia investor outreach has occurred through both an OZ Investor Convening February 23-24, 2021, and outreach and support from the Steering Committee and Technical Assistance providers. The highly visible Investor Convening was held to highlight OZ communities and related investable transactions. Pre-vetted National Impact investors and Opportunity Funds (QOFs) with compatible interests were invited to attend, a curated web-based platform hosting prospectus / pitch decks was available to assist investors pre-event, and the event included pitches from investment-ready OZ communities.
TA providers and the Steering Committee also leveraged their local and national relationships to introduce promising community transactions to vetted and interested investors. These outreach and placement efforts involve support for introductory meetings and if possible, site visits.
