Impact investments are investments made with the intention to generate measurable social and environmental impact alongside a financial return. Impact investing complements public and philanthropic capitals in addressing pressing global problems. Although impact investing has the potential to unlock significant sums of commercial capital, the challenges to commercialization of impact investing are numerous and difficult. The struggle, however, may shed light on how capitalism as we know of today may be transformed. The spring 2015 Global Problem & Solution Colloquium will invite leading thinkers and practitioners in the sector to share with our students and faculty their perspectives and experiences in bridging the gap and explore and envision a better future together.
