The San Francisco Bay Area is home not only to technology innovation, but also to the growing trend of impact investing—an investment approach that seeks to create both financial and social returns. In a story that examines the region’s impact investing landscape, the Maximpact blog cites Benetech among some of the biggest players in the Bay Area.
“The region is home to a substantial pool of potential funders as well as many highly creative impact entrepreneurs, giving investors plenty of choices,” the story notes. It lists Benetech along the likes of Kiva.org, Draper University, Silicon Valley Social Venture Fund (SV2), Skoll Foundation, Omidyar Network, SOCAP, and Impact Hub Bay Area, and others.
