How can you find innovative alternatives to solve the most pressing social and environmental problems on a global scale? A great way to get inspiration and take the first steps is to get in direct contact with the key players in the impact investing ecosystem.
Impact investments focus on private markets and aim to drive social or environmental change through businesses that create impact while generating a financial return.
“If something has made the pandemic more latent, it will take impact investments to create a more resilient region and reactivate the economy,” said Rodrigo Villar, founding partner of New Ventures Mexico and Adobe Capital.
