Don’t ask me why they thought I would be good for this, but somehow I find myself this week with the honor of helping out at I3C with the evaluation of submissions for innovative ideas around financial instruments and vehicles for impact investing proposed by sharp graduate students from all over the place.
In the words of the competition:
The International Impact Investing Challenge is a pitch competition focused on designing investment vehicles that create sustainable impact and are of the size and scope that would be of interest to institutional investors. Graduates students are challenged to propose and defend a sustainable investment strategy for an institutional investor who makes sustainable investments.
For more information, check out the official website of the 2012 International Impact Investing Challenge.
While I can’t share obviously info on current submissions I will look forward to report back in case there are some interesting outcomes or when there is information available publicly that I can bring back to Good Generation for scrutiny among our impact investment mavens.
Meanwhile, I got to make sure to make my evenings this week available for this after just returning from a business trip to India and the Middle East yesterday, yikes… bring on the drinkable concentration aides.
Stand by for more on this hopefully soon. Oh, and thanks for understanding in case I fall slightly behind the postings for GG this week.
