The Case for Impact Investing
As a tech investor, you know that there’s a lot of money to be made in the tech industry. But what if you could make money and do good at the same time? That’s where impact investing comes in.
Impact investing generates both financial and social returns. These investments are made in for-profit companies that solve some of the world’s most pressing problems, such as poverty, hunger, and climate change.
Why try impact investing? First, a recent study by the Global Impact Investing Network found that impact investments commonly outperformed non-impact investments.
Second, your money can have a positive impact on the world, without giving it away. This can be a very rewarding experience, both personally and financially.
Third, impact investing can help to build a more sustainable future. Less hunger. Less poverty. A better climate both the planet and for our children’s future.
But perhaps the best reason to consider impact investing is the feel-good factor. When you invest in a company that is working to solve a social problem, you know that you are making a difference in the world. Impact investments are the stories you’ll tell your friends over dinner, and the investments you’ll tout to strangers at the next cocktail party.
So if you are looking for a way to make money, make a difference, and build a more sustainable future, impact investing is a great option to consider.
