Impact Investing and Social Entrepreneurship in Central America
Definitions of impact investment vary, but they have some features in common: impact-focused entities as target and financial return lower than market rate. Impact investing is becoming increasingly important as inequality worldwide grows. It is a means of bridging the gap between donor-reliant philanthropy and the estimated $100 trillion in opportunity currently in for-profit capital markets. Impact investing is a combination of socially conscious values and the competitive nature and demand-drive of the market.
