Why is this important?
- Because we all benefit from a well-fed, healthier, more educated, more civic, environmentally safe, society.
- Because ingenuity and innovation go hand in hand with the availability of capital in large scale, and concepts such as capital efficiency and competitive returns are the backbone of private capital investment.
- Because private investors who ride on the wave of “Impact Investing” stand to profit financially while helping address society’s most serious challenges, including: access to potable water, poverty and hunger alleviation, access to health care and education, affordable housing and climate change.
PhilantroGuia is also educating and promoting Impact Investing, as a way to harness resources to develop and invest on businesses targeted to generate competitive financial returns, while addressing different needs of underserved individuals. We join forces with the business and other non-profit investment organizations to expand the impact investing community, supporting or investing on businesses alignedwith the same purpose.
