Impact investing theme is taking off these days, as profit-seeking alone is not enough. As a consumer, employee or investor, you want to make sure your stakeholders are helping make the world a better place.
Investment world is particularly interesting in this context. From a world where ‘supporting a cause’ meant donation, we’re moving to the universe of impact investments, where making money and making a change can coexist. Any entrepreneur knows that a startup begins with a problem and the biggest problems of our current society, like climate change, refugee crisis, water pollution, deforestation, etc., provide the cradle for future billion dollar companies and today’s investment opportunities.
