This class was highly meaningful for me in developing a broad range of knowledge and skill sets. At the end of the semester, we were able to put into practice what we had been learning pitch a real company to real investors as if we were associates at their firm. I was so intrigued by the world of impact investing, that I decided to write an article on it for a business writing course.
Impact Investing helps students learn how to invest in social businesses that are creating positive social impact. Students will gain a foundation in understanding venture capital and impact investing, hear social ventures pitch their ideas, and learn how to think critically and analyze social impact, business models, and other aspects of a business.
