Impact investing is all the rage in philanthropy circles, but most people still don’t really know what it is, let alone how to do it. In order to make impact investing easy for you, I’ve created a new course on Udemy, “Intro to Impact Investing.”
Traditionally, impact investing has been the province of institutional investors and wealthy individuals. That is beginning to change and everyone can now be an impact investor.
In fact, in “Intro to Impact Investing” you will learn how to make your first impact investment with as little as $20.
Impact investing is a way you can use your money for good–and get it back with interest! Impact investments come in all forms and while many are tremendously risky, some have almost no risk at all. While some require sophisticated analysis and what investors call “due diligence,” some you can buy on a whim without concern.
Udemy is a platform for online training materials of all sorts. “Intro to Impact Investing” is offered for just $25, but readers can buy lifetime access to the course at 20 percent off using the discount code “DOGOODER” at checkout.
The course can be completed in just 30 minutes. When you finish, you will be ready to make your first impact investment.
Making your first impact investment can be invigorating. Unlike making a donation, the money you invest for impact can come back to you, allowing you to do good with it over and over again.
Impact investments, just like traditional investments, come in all shapes and sizes, each with its own risk and return profile. By completing this course, you can not only be ready to make your first impact investment, but you’ll be equipped to learn more about investing in more complex investments for social impact.
