In this piece, the GIIN's Co-founder and CEO Amit Bouri highlights both the challenges and opportunities that mainstreaming presents, as well as the work the GIIN is leading as a field builder to ensure the industry achieves its great potential. “The GIIN’s efforts to raise awareness about impact investing, and support new investors with the information, tools, networks, and confidence they need to enter the impact investing tent will, I hope, help to mitigate some of the risks of mainstreaming and contribute meaningfully to the scale of capital being deployed…As a community, we can all help guide investors on their journey to becoming effective impact investors.”
