The Global Impact Investment Network (GIIN) has recently published a new report, Lasting Impact: The Need for Responsible Exits, which reveals insights into how impact investors enable the organizations and projects they finance to expand and deepen their impact beyond the duration of their investment. The report describes a variety of approaches taken by investors—to select, manage, and ultimately exit their investments responsibly.
This report outlines impact investors’ approaches to achieving responsible exits, drawing insights from interviews with more than 30 investors and entrepreneurs and a review of existing resources on the topic. It includes a theoretical analysis and four case studies. Investors might be interested in reading this excellent piece of research as inspiration for considering their role in creating long-term, wide-reaching, positive impact.
