The growing popularity of impact investing and social entrepreneurship is helping to bring innovative solutions to the world’s toughest social and environmental issues, while also driving investors, not-for-profits and businesses to rethink their respective roles in terms of creating long-term value, mobilizing private capital, and embedding sustainability and social impact into a company’s core mission. How can the public, private and not-for-profit sectors collaborate to encourage both impact investing and social entrepreneurship? How can social and environmental impact be measured beyond profitability and return on investment? Are impact investing and social entrepreneurship influencing today’s practices and perceptions in the business and financial sectors?
