WHAT? & WHY?

A growing number of international players have been working to develop markets for privately funded ventures with a complex mix of purposes: generating financial returns, improving the lives of people, and healing the environment. These nascent markets depend on the availability of reliable impact information.

While the information currently available is of a higher quality than it was five years ago, it is not sufficient to make these markets sustainable.

How

At IMPCON, participants will work together to develop an action agenda that advances the state of the art of impact measurement.  After the convergence, the agenda will be advanced by cross-sector teams under the leadership of steward organizations.
