Getting positive returns on the money we allocate in investment opportunities is a very common and widespread expectation of people. We often find ourselves trying to look for ways to double our capital or generate returns from our seed money. In this entire process of capital generation, corporates and businesses cash in on mighty profits. Our investments are generally focused on us and our profits and very rarely on the collective good of society. While honest profit generation is harmless and very beneficial, it is important that we understand the role we play as members of the society. It is only relevant that we give back in our own little ways and help those who need it most.
Impact investment is a very effective field to do this. It not only allows you to enjoy your financial return but also benefits social/environmental factors while doing so. Impact investments are investments that one can make in order to generate financial returns while also generating positive and measurable social/environmental impact! It is a very favourable field for those looking to do their part in contributing to society.
The Impact Investment market allows the investors widespread and viable opportunities to choose from. Options which also act as catalysts for solving social and environmental matters whilst giving a promising return. Capital that is generated from the growing Impact Investment Industry, is used to address pressing global matters like healthcare, education, environment protection etc.

In conversation with our very own host Frits Bussemaker, Florian takes us through his journey of impact investing and self discovery.
Florian believes that the initial stages of his life where he studied personal development in order to understand himself better are some of the defining steps of his life and career. He explains his growth from trying to do the right thing for society to discovering himself in the process.
He shares the vital difference between fantasy and path and how it can help us to decide what we really want to do. In his opinion, it is not just about success but more about the desire of what we want to do and how we wish to change the world.
His company Bamboo Capital Partners works towards resolving four major problems via investment. Their focus is on financial inclusion, access to cleaner energy, access to healthcare and agribusiness. Florian also shares a very personal story that led him to learn more about helping more and more people.
Frits and Florian further engage in a very gripping discussion about the Young Presidents Organisation, the Sustainable Development Goals and a lot more about the bittersweet journey of self discovery.
