Social impact resources available for the new investor:

The Global Impact Investing Network (GIIN) is the global champion of impact investing, dedicated to increasing its scale and effectiveness around the world.

The Case Foundation creates programs and invests in people and organizations that harness the best impulses of entrepreneurship, innovation, technology and collaboration to drive impact. Their efforts to drive social change are focused on three key pillars: revolutionizing philanthropy, unleashing entrepreneurs, and igniting civic engagement.

USAID’s Center for Accelerating Innovation and Impact (CII) takes a business-minded approach to fast-tracking the development, introduction, and scale-up of health interventions that address the world’s most pressing health challenges. CII invests seed capital in the most promising ideas to cut the time it takes to transform discoveries in the lab to impact on the ground.
