Launched in 2015, the GSB Impact Fund is a student-managed evergreen fund that invests in early stage for-profit ventures, seeking both attractive financial returns and measurable social value. All returns are reinvested into new enterprises.
As a student-managed fund, the GSB Impact Fund provides current GSB students on the ground learning experiences and understanding of the financial returns on socially and environmentally-driven ventures.
Under the guidance of faculty advisors, Professors Paul Pfleiderer and Kenneth Singleton, who are joined on the Investment Committee by alumni and expert practitioners, the fund is housed by the Center for Social Innovation at Stanford Graduate School of Business.
