THE CHALLENGE FOR IMPACT INVESTORS IN NOT FINANCIAL RETURN
Most investor would like to do good, when doing well.
Everyday they are approached by entrepreneurs and startups with sustainable solutions. But are these innovations actually better and more sustainable than existing products and services?
And if so, how much better?
It’s easy to get distracted by innovative ideas, technology, and passionate people. So investors must ask themselves other kind of questions.
What is the evidence that these solutions are leading to real change and not having unforeseen negative consequences?
And can the change give birth to new sustainable product categories that positively disrupts the market?
Today, Impact Business Modeling System™ is a preferred methodology for many investors, accelerators, incubators and business advisors to understand and ensure the impact business case of the new ventures they advice and invest in.
