Do good, while doing well.
Using market forces to achieve positive social change is infinitely scalable. While not applicable to every problem, if we can help solve some problems through the use of businesses using traditional models, it not only betters the world, but allows philanthropic dollars to focus on those issues which can’t be solved by market forces. The Center uses an innovative student-centric diligence model to provide impact investors high-quality diligence on social enterprises.
Our students have independently facilitated investments into impact companies—looking at companies that are doing good while doing well.
We have raised an $8.1 million student-centric venture fund that has catalyzed research, technology, and job growth across sectors.
Over 200 students were educated in the principles of impact investing and gained hands-on experience in consultation and investment.
