We have listened to several impact financiers during the Impact Measurement Landscape, giving an insight into their way of measuring impact. Examples and best case practices were shared with regards to which impact measurement methods were preferred, how to tie KPI’s to realised impact and how to embed impact measurement within an organisation.
Next we have discussed our dilemma’s with respect to impact measurement. How to deal with the trade-off between financial return and impact? Should we convert impact into monetary value? Should realised impact be linked to remuneration of fund managers? How to quantify the effectiveness of social impact investments?
On the Impact Measurement Market Place new connections have been made with the impact measurement specialists of The Impact Institute, Sinzer, Avance Impact, Sustainalize and Steward Redqueen.
During the Deal Sharing Matchmaking impact investors took the stage who were looking for a co-funder on a specific transaction. Hopefully some matchmaking has been taking during the Network Drinks!
