The Impact Economy Innovations Fund (IEIF) is a new creation by Asia Community Ventures and the Rockefeller Foundation. It was launched earlier this year specifically for the East and Southeast Asia Impact Investing Forum and intends to focus on early-stage capital and attempting to support entrepreneurship in a holistic way.
In "Connecting the Dots of Impact Investing in Asia," Remi Kanji, a writer for MaRS' Social Finance web publication who went to the forum in Hong Kong was relatively positive about the Impact Economy Innovations Fund's possibility in order to connect capital with social problems, a gap that the Rockefeller's name could bring a bit of pressure to -- for better or for worse.
