Inflexion raises £285,000 for the Impetus triathlon
On Saturday 18th September, 28 Inflexion employees and teams from eight Inflexion portfolio companies completed the Impetus Triathlon. Through the generosity of Inflexion’s portfolio companies and valued network, the Inflexion team and portfolio companies raised a combined total of over £143,000. This has been matched by the Inflexion Foundation, reaching a total of over £285,000, once again making Inflexion the highest fundraiser for the Impetus triathlon.
Impetus transforms the lives of young people from disadvantaged backgrounds by ensuring they get the right support to succeed in school, in work and in life. The money raised will support charities and social enterprises with a track record of helping young people, providing management support, pro bono expertise and funding to scale the services they provide.
Each year, the Inflexion team spends a large amount of time and effort training and raising money for the Impetus triathlon. This is because we have witnessed the way that Impetus changes the lives of young people, and as a firm we are incredibly passionate about young people’s access to education and career opportunities. We are delighted that this year, so many of our portfolio companies took part and raised money alongside the Inflexion team, and we are very proud of everyone that took part.
