Colorado Impact Days, hosted March 3rd-4th in conjuction with the Colorado Impact Initiative and the Impact Finance Center, is a first of its kind multi-track impact investment competition devoted to showcasing impact investment opportunities in for-profit and nonprofit ventures in Colorado. It is intended to engage new impact investors and philanthropists and to drive new capital into the local market by connecting investors and investees.

Colorado Impact Days is the flagship event of the Colorado Impact Initiative, a 3-year strategy of the Impact Finance Center designed to elevate and accelerate impact investing in Colorado, specifically to catalyze the flow of $100 million in investment capital into Colorado-based ventures that deliver positive impact on the state’s communities, economy and natural environment.  In support of this effort, Governor John Hickenlooper has proclaimed March 4th as Colorado Impact Investing Day!

The Impact Finance Center is a partnership between Daniels College of Business at the University of Denver and the Sustainable Endowments Institute, a special project of Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors. Through research, education and advisory services, the Impact Finance Center is dedicated to catalyzing investments that produce enduring value for the investor, society, and our environment.
