2021 upcoming research: Navigating Impact Measurement and Management

April 20, 2021



Investors for impact have been true pioneers in recognising the importance of IMM, taking a systematic and evidence-based approach, leveraging impact data collected both at investee and investor level. In our definition of venture philanthropy, IMM represents one of the three core practices (alongside non-financial support and tailored financing), and it is also a principle of the EVPA Charter of investors for impact.

EVPA has always been at the forefront of the global debate on IMM, and with this new research project it aims to contribute to the ecosystem with useful guidance for practitioners and best practices that may inspire the work of investors for impact and beyond.

Given the high number of methodologies, frameworks and tools available to support investors to create an IMM system, and given the countless debates on this topic happening in the space, EVPA is committed to provide guidance and showcase how investors forimpact adopt this practice, as shown by the newly published series of dynamic dashboards.

Call for cases

We are starting to collect inspiring cases through in-depth interviews. Thus, if you are an EVPA member willing to be featured as IMM best practice, send us an email to schedule an interview with our research team.

EVPA history on IMM

EVPA has a long-standing experience in researching IMM and it has been among the first organisations to publish an extensive guide to help practitioners implement this practice. The five-step framework included in the EVPA guide has also informed the European Standard for IMM developed by the Groupe d’experts de la Commission sur l’entrepreneuriat social (GECES).

Stay tuned for more updates on this research!

Over the coming months, we will keep on collecting cases, and we will share the key insights from interviews with experts and practitioners.

Stay tuned!
