Indicators of a Successful Impact Investment
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.
