Water to the World: Innovation Brings Change

Innovative Water Technologies, a company based in Dumont, Colorado, provides sustainable clean water technology to the disaster relief in Haiti. How else might this new technology benefit other health and human services missions? How can the investment community better support and promote these problem solving innovations? One thought is to “mature” the impact investment marketplace, to create an exchange that is able to search out and fund development. There are impact investment funds that operate and fund social companies, yet there is no formal marketplace for social investment. Perhaps now is the time one is created. Innovation breeds innovation. Funny, that.
