Key takeaways

  • The World Economic Forum states that impact investing is an investment approach that intentionally seeks to create both financial return and positive social or environmental impact that is actively measured.
  • Measurement remains to be one of the hardest parts of the industry to agree on and an area where academia could be instrumental.
  • You don’t need to have the title of impact investor to make change. Focus on the commercial purpose of your business, so it’s not about how you give away money, but how you make money.
