When Impact Engine launched in 2012, it was a bit of an experiment. The concept of impact entrepreneurship was very new in Chicago, and in many ways, it still is. After a lot of educating, handholding, risk taking, and everything in between, here we are—three years later—and we couldn’t be more proud of the community we’ve built. It’s a community filled with passionate entrepreneurs, investors, and mentors who truly believe for-profit and purpose go hand in hand. But don’t take it from us. Hear from Impact Engine graduates, impact investors, and community members firsthand about the growth of impact investing and entrepreneurship in Chicago. WATCH:
