Making impact investing mainstream
About This Series
Impact investing, a social movement over a decade old, has evolved into ways that can help catalyze an economic recovery; and with the rise in community impact investing in Canada, our nation can help set the stage on a global level to create change through innovation and make impact mainstream. In partnership with Spring, Future of Good will create a 3 story series to explore the rise of impact investing in Canada.
What’s the future for early-stage impact investing in Canada? We asked 5 emerging investors
Impact startups and small businesses want to build a more equitable post-pandemic recovery in Canada, but they need support to thrive and innovate. There is now a fast-growing movement of early-stage impact investors supporting solutions to systemic issues.
Here's why these two startups won big at Spring Activator's recent Impact Investor Challenges
Coming out of COVID-19, Canada — and the world — will need those with big ideas for impact to bring them to life. And the country will need organizations like Spring to step up and fund brand new ideas and solutions.
Tech investors are turning to impact — what are they teaching the social impact sector?
With a background in the technology sector, tech investors could help to scale social impact solutions quickly, and offer new ideas and tools to transform social impact organisations. In turn, however, long standing social impact investors have a thing or two to teach tech in achieving meaningful impact. This could transform the social impact sector.
