NUImpact is a student-led impact investing initiative at Northeastern University. We serve as a resource for the entire Northeastern community to understand purposeful capital. We offer thought-exchanges through speaker events, interactive workshops, lecture series and community conversations. Engage with us to get involved in sustainable and responsible finance that builds a better future.
Since our inception in Spring 2016, our objective is to build an environment where Northeastern students can engage with the language of capital and the language of social impact by learning from industry professionals and participating in a fund where students invest in Boston-based impact investing opportunities for the greater good. ”
In 2015, passionate students Mindi Chen and Ruby Khan from Dr. C. Sara Lawrence Minard's Impact Investing and Social Finance course identified a growing interest in impact investing among NU students and community stakeholders. The female-led initiative made a pitch to Thrive and Mosaic to raise seed capital for a collaborative impact investing space.
