Impact Investment Thesis

Hello, this is Hall T. Martin with the Startup Funding Espresso -- your daily shot of startup funding and investing.

An investment thesis states what you will invest in, why it will be successful, and what outcome you anticipate. 

It’s important to determine your investment thesis for impact investing.

Here are some guidelines:

Impact investing proposes to invest in innovative companies that seek to change the world.

This change takes place in social and environmental areas such as those specified in the United Nations Sustainable Development goals. 

Impact investing looks to make a measurable change, so the investment must show a metric result on specific criteria.

Impact investing often focuses on companies in healthcare, education, food, and cleantech.

The investment thesis specifies the revenue, sector, and stage of the companies that meet its criteria so you can focus your deal flow efforts.

Impact investing - as in all investment theses - seeks a positive return on investment at the upper range of market returns.

Impact investing can be applied at all levels of investment.  

At the angel level, it fills a gap in the market by focusing on early-stage innovation. 

Thank you for joining us for the Startup Funding Espresso where we help startups and investors connect for funding.

Let’s go startup something today.
