In The Power of Impact Investing, Judith Rodin and Margot Brandenburg demonstrate that impact investing has the power to provide sustainable solutions to the world’s toughest problems. In addition to laying out the landscape of opportunity for different types of investors, they tell stories of impact investors who are creating social impact and of enterprises benefiting from the partnership. Both Judith and Margot’s voices are critical to this emerging field.”

For more than 100 years, the Rockefeller Foundation’s mission has been to promote the well-being of humanity throughout the world. Today, the Rockefeller Foundation pursues this mission through dual goals: advancing inclusive economies that expand opportunities for more broadly shared prosperity, and building resilience by helping people, communities, and institutions prepare for, withstand, and emerge stronger from acute shocks and chronic stresses. To achieve these goals, the Rockefeller Foundation works at the intersection of four focus areas (advance health, revalue ecosystems, secure livelihoods, and transform cities) to address the root causes of emerging challenges and create systemic change. Together with partners and grantees, the Rockefeller Foundation strives to catalyze and scale transformative innovations, create unlikely partnerships that span sectors, and take risks others cannot—or will not.
