We are pleased to introduce you to Upstart Co-Lab’s new position paper, A Creativity Lens: Impact investing in the creative economy, which we are presenting in digital format.
A one page executive summary serves as the key to our investigation of the current opportunity to connect impact investing with art, design, culture, media, and entertainment. Click on the hyperlinks in the executive summary for definitions, case examples, in-depth research and additional resources. (If you prefer, a printable PDF of the paper is available here.)
Through 2017, this is a living document. We will continue to update with more facts and examples, deep dives and perspectives. As we engage in conversations with impact investors and impact wealth advisors around the U.S., we will reflect their feedback. In early 2018, we will release the final version of this work.
We heartily welcome any comments, questions, or feedback. Please contact us here. And please check back over the coming months as our discussion of impact investing in the creative economy deepens and grows.
