As governments and the non-for-profit sector cannot solve social problems alone, even in prosperous societies, the for-profit sector had been investing in ventures with the concurrent objective of having a positive impact on society “and” generating acceptable returns. It is “Impact Investing”, and it can have and has had returns comparable to those of the for-profit sector at large.
Why is this important?

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.
