The New ROII: Return on Impact Investing in For-Profit Social Ventures

  • Liu Idea Lab for Innovation and Entrepreneurship (Rice University) 6100 Main St, Houston, TX 77005 Houston, Tx 77005 US (map)

The Global Impact Investing Network (GIIN) estimates the impact investing market place at $114B and growing. Individuals and institutions alike are looking for opportunities to place investment capital into businesses that do well by doing good, which allow their dollars to generate both financial and social return. Like traditional capital markets, the impact investing marketplace spans a continuum of investment opportunities ranging from early-stage angel investing to large-scale investment by institutional investors such as CalPERS and Morgan Stanley.

Impact Hub Houston and LILIE (Liu Idea Lab for Innovation and Entrepreneurship at Rice University) invite you to attend this panel discussion and gain a better understanding about the unique characteristics of the impact investing continuum from angel investors, venture capital investors, and institutional investors who are actively placing return-seeking investment capital into for-profit social enterprises.
