Empowering Social Impact Through Strategic Investment
At Goizueta Impact Investors (GII), our mission transcends traditional finance. Established as an innovative student-run venture at Emory University's Goizueta Business School, GII is dedicated to fostering sustainable growth and social equity. We extend our support to both for-profit and non-profit social enterprises within the Atlanta area, offering them a financial springboard through affordable, strategic loans.
Bridging the gap between ambition and resources
GII originated as a microfinance fund, aspiring to bridge the gap between ambition and resources for social ventures. Since 2013, our vision has evolved to embrace direct debt investments. We selectively partner with organizations that are not just businesses, but beacons of hope - addressing critical social needs, uplifting underprivileged communities, and championing the common good through their products, services, and employment opportunities.
Fueling Growth & Self Sufficiency
Financing for long-term prosperity
Our financial assistance is crafted not merely as a short-term solution, but as a catalyst for long-term prosperity. We aim to guide our borrowers toward a trajectory of growth, self-sufficiency, and eventually, integration into mainstream financial channels. In this journey, both the borrowers and GII thrive, achieving mutual profitability and impact.
Educating Future Impact Leaders
An immersive learning experience for Goizueta students
Beyond financial transactions, GII is committed to enlightening the Goizueta community about the transformative potential of finance. We offer an immersive learning experience for Goizueta students, allowing them to delve into the realm of impact investing and participate in real-world investment processes. Our goal is to mold students into future leaders who will navigate the business world with a keen sense of social responsibility and a drive to make a meaningful difference.
Through GII, we seek to redefine the role of finance in building a more equitable and sustainable world, one investment at a time.
