Viewpoint: Digital Impact Investing Is Here Now

By Lawrence Wintermeyer

The inaugural Digital Impact Week was held in London between the 7th and the 11th of November and packed in three big events: Women in Blockchain; Healthcare Unblocked; and the Digital Impact Summit. The event was the first of its kind in London to set the stage for how digital technologies are combing with capital and are creating positive global social change.

For a geek capitalist like me with one foot in the money-making machine and the other in the sustainable impact investment machine, I was like a kid in a candy shop. I spoke to several global leaders and influencers, and what is of note is the many initiatives that are currently up, running and in-train. Digital impact is here, now, and happening.

In an often bleak political epoch, what a ray of light—capital and digital are working in partnership and we are moving the dial on impact.
