Hawaiian Group of VCs and Angel Investors is Serious About Impact Investing via @triplepundit nice mention of @hoopfund!
Spencer said that it is not only easy for entrepreneurs to start a business that makes a difference, it’s simply necessary. And for the many curious investors in the room at the HVCA luncheon, he said that the good news is, “You can have your cake and eat it, too” (by investing in companies that make money and that you can feel good about). Chenoa Farnsworth, Director of the Hawaii Angels, said, “Impact investing is my favorite topic.” The idea of using private markets to drive growth in sustainability is relatively new. Farnsworth was inspired by the Social Capital conference SOCAP which took place in San Francisco.
