Impact investing can actually unlock enormous good - cleantech perspectives @ Clixoo
Impact investing is a field with enormous potential for good despite the risks that it must be held accountable for.
Moo: I’d rather be a venture capital investor than an impact investor, Xoo.
Xoo: Why such a sudden affiliation towards a set of investors you normally don’t hold in high esteem, Moo?
Moo: I admit that I have my grudges against venture capital companies - they care only about money with the sole focus of their life being how they go about multiplying their investment value.
Xoo: And yet, you suddenly prefer them to impact investors who should appear like saints to you compared to venture capitalists.
Moo: Because a venture capitalist's job definition is more clear, Xoo - just make money. Impact investors may be good Samaritans, but which side of the coin should they bet on – the money side or the impact side – when they invest?
Xoo: I presume a portion of their investment goes for impact and the other portion for returns.
Moo: And how will they know which portion goes for what, Xoo?
Xoo: It's not everyday that you stymie me with a question, Moo, But today is one such.
