Impact investing has been getting a lot of buzz lately, and for good reason. Impact investors look to make a profit while also making a positive social impact in communities that are overlooked by mainstream investors. By investing for both financial and social returns, impact investing helps to create an economy that works for everyone.
Over the past 16 years, PCV has been making impact investments to high-growth small businesses through our equity and debt funds, and also by investing intellectual capital to build these businesses, all while carefully monitoring the social impact that we are creating. This impact evaluation gives us the data we need to identify best practices in impact investing, and we share this expertise with investors around the world to grow the impact economy.
Join us for our 2014 Annual Luncheon as an event sponsor and help us celebrate PCV’s unique ecosystem of programs that is helping to grow small businesses and social enterprises and create jobs where they are needed most. This year’s event will look at the policy work that PCV is doing across the globe to advance the impact investing economy, and will feature case studies that show how PCV’s work is creating an economy that works for everyone, where everyone who is able has work.
