Indicators of a Successful Impact Investment
Hello, this is Hall T. Martin with the Startup Funding Espresso -- your daily shot of startup funding and investing.
Impact investing seeks to fund startups with social or environmental benefits.
Those running impact companies must do so with the intention of providing a social or environmental impact with a measured result.
The investment must provide a benefit that is more than what would have occurred otherwise.
This is called additionality.
The indicators of a successful impact investment are as follows:
The company can show a measured impact and, based on its business model, forecast that impact over time.
The company should bring innovation that provides the impact.
The company must be able to show a sustainable business model over time in order to deliver the result.
The company must show entrepreneurial skills and capabilities.
If you have these elements, then you have a true impact investment that is making a difference.
