Givkwik + Impact Investing

November 10, 2017   Jason Rosado, CEO


We are happy to share news of a recent partnership we established that pushes our platform into the nascent area of Impact Investing and into a new geography - the Rocky Mountain region. Here's a note shared by our client/partner - Impact Finance Center. 

Now in its second year, CO Impact Days, the Impact Finance Center’s 3-day experiential user conference, has teamed up with Givkwik as its technology partner to further elevate the signature event.

This year, CO Impact Days will take place November 15-17 and continues its promise to be the place where focused investors and philanthropists gain the confidence, tools and connections they need to take action in new, powerful ways. 

Building on the successes of last year, the partnership with Givkwik also allows the conference team to debut an efficient online experience that includes an interface for ventures to submit applications and profiles, an interface for judges to evaluate those ventures, a dashboard for the management team to track the progress of evaluation and profile submissions, and finally, a public marketplace of profiles that can help initiate funding discussions between potential donors and investors.

While Givkwik has helped companies like PwC, Vodafone and Amalgamated Bank with their corporate grant-making, this partnership is an initial foray in impact investing with its proprietary profile and donor advised fund-based system. Of the partnership, Givkwik’s Founder and CEO, Jason Rosado says, “We’re thrilled to work with Impact Finance Center and to have an opportunity to apply what we’ve learned as a social venture ourselves to help others.”

Meanwhile, Stephanie Gripne, CEO of the Impact Finance Center, says “This is the beginning of a great, productive relationship, the future of which includes utilizing giving circles as a method for promoting even more impact investing.”
