We're thrilled to announce that on October 3, our Co-Founder and Chair, Morgan Simon, released her first book, REAL IMPACT: The New Economics of Social Change, out from Nation Books.
To hear Morgan speak about REAL IMPACT, check out her interview on ImpactAlpha's "Return on Investment" podcast.
About the Book
Impact investment is the trillion-dollar trend most people have never heard of — the support of social and environmental projects with a financial return. It has become a hot topic amongst people who care about social change, and is growing exponentially: in the next decade, it is poised to eclipse traditional charitable aid by a factor of ten to one. Yet for all the excitement, there is work to do to ensure it actually realizes its potential. Will impact investment empower millions of people worldwide, or will it just replicate the same failures of both charity and finance?
In REAL IMPACT, published by Nation Books, she teaches us how to get impact investing right, leveraging the world’s resources to truly transform the economy. For almost two decades, Simon has influenced over $150 billion from endowments, families, and foundations. In REAL IMPACT, Simon shares her experience in investment and activism to offer clear strategies for investors, community leaders, and entrepreneurs alike. REAL IMPACT is essential reading for anyone seeking real change in the world.
