Cornell Impact Investing Competition Finals & My Journey Into Impact Investing


Resilience through sustainability is needed more than ever. As the line between business and social and environmental issues is disappearing, the private sector is learning how it can be a productive partner in promoting solutions to issues such a social and environmental justice, food insecurity, climate change, supply chain transparency, overconsumption, and more. They are coming to the realization that addressing these issues through core business strategies is not only good for society but also good for business. Attend one or all of the panels to hear from those leading efforts to create a more resilient world.

The Cornell Impact Investing Competition is an online pitch competition that allows undergraduate Cornell students in teams of 2-4 people, to identify, research, and recommend an existing early stage company that addresses a social or environmental problem for a hypothetical investment of up to one million dollars. Come listen to the finalists as they make their final pitch to the judges.

While waiting for the results, hear from Sarah Howe (BS ’07), Senior Portfolio Manager, Open Road Alliance as she talks about her journey in impact investing. Student host: Impact Investing at Cornell.
