At the Impact Investment Summit in October 2016, a recurrent theme was “there is so much going on in the impact investment ecosystem, but how do I find out about it all year round?” (rather than just once a year at the Impact Investment Summit!)
The goal of this project is to create an online map of the players in the Australian impact investment ecosystem, to help drive the shift towards impact investing. It is hoped that this will function somewhat like a directory – a “one stop shop” information portal for people who want to learn about the impact investment ecosystem, and so help it flourish.
The student team researched the best software to use to put the data online in a user friendly way, and then put it live! The team also explored whether the map should extend to listing products from various players and examine the legal implications of putting such a listing together.
