Investing for Impact is our methodology to support clients make decisions around investing in new social businesses and products. Our methodology takes clients through four gated phases which consider the market and category to target, the development of a business model that can be competitive and sustainable, the investment required and likely returns and a plan to raise capital and launch the business.
