Forbes Launches Impact Investing Community


Foundation: Case Foundation

Forbes Media will be launching an Impact Investment Community on November 16,2017. The community will be comprised, by invite only, of the world's most influential, celebrities (to include musicians and athletes), investors, entrepreneurs and leaders. Their purpose will be impact investing: they will use capital to make a cultural influence, rather than just talk about the issues.

Paul Noglows, one of the co-founders of Forbes Impact, wants to work at solving some of the world's problems, which include climate change, and securing a sustainable future in terms of infrastructure, community building and technology.

The best shot at solving these problems is finding exceptional people and allowing them to engage in entrepreneurial capitalism. The mission of Forbes Impact is to make their ideas go mainstream.
