Club - NUImpact
NUImpact is Northeastern University’s student-led impact investing initiative and investment fund. Since our inception in Spring 2016, our female-founded organization has served as a unique resource and thought-exchange for the Northeastern community to understand purposeful capital, develop technical skills, and make targeted investments in companies that promote positive social and environmental impact. Each semester, our team of student analysts run an investment process that injects $25,000 to $50,000 of our capital into a Boston-based, financially sustainable business that aims to serve underserved communities.
NUImpact has chosen to partner with Entrepreneurship for All (EforAll) Roxbury for this year’s Giving Day to promote the impact EforAll has provided for the Roxbury community. EforAll is a non-profit organization that offers an accelerator program and pitch contests for entrepreneurs to help grow or kick start their businesses. Located in Roxbury, MA, EforAll encourages local area residents with a dream of having a business intensive business training, mentorship, and an extended professional support network they need to be successful. The proceeds will go directly to advancing entrepreneurs in their accelerator program and to the pitch contest held biannually. Our partnership enables NUImpact to receive recommendations of potential companies every academic semester from EforAll. This partnership further establishes NUImpact’s long-awaited effort to streamline inbound sourcing of companies.
