Accelerating Impact: Achievements, Challenges and What’s Next in Building the Impact Investing Industry
July 7, 2012
Accelerating Impact, a report prepared by E.T. Jackson and Associates and commissioned by The Rockefeller Foundation as part of a third-party evaluation of our Impact Investing initiative, provides one of the most recent and comprehensive scans of the global impact investing industry to date. The research is informed in part by insights from interviews with more than 100 impact investing leaders from 11 countries.
The report examines the evolution of the field over the past four years as well as its current status, reflecting that the field has moved decisively from a phase of “uncoordinated innovation” to one of sustained “marketplace-building.” The report concludes by offering recommendations to industry leaders regarding the challenges and opportunities that may lie ahead.
