IMPACT INVESTING W MIKE WINTERFIELD – EP. 9
Mike Winterfield is the founder and CEO of Active Impact Investments.
He is blazing an interesting trail in the world of finance with a focus on companies that have a defined social benefit and purpose.
The thesis of his fund is to invest in companies that have a clear stated mission to tackle some of our most challenging social and environmental problems. The thing is, it is not a charity by any means. Along with a purpose that goes beyond just profit, his fund is looking to make outsized returns the same way a typical venture capital fund would.
Impact investing may be gaining a meaningful following. From high-networth investors looking to have more meaning in their investments to companies using a greater purpose as a competitive advantage, Mike and his team are on to something really interesting.
