What is Social Impact?

A New Sector of the Economy…

There is a new sector of the economy, the 4th Sector, that is embracing businesses that merge mission and margin, purpose and profit. This movement seeks to create social and environmental impact through the powerful economic engine of capitalism. The 4th Sector is reshaping our economy, capitalism, businesses and nonprofits alike.

We believe in innovation. We believe that business can inspire us. We believe that a business with a mission is a powerful force that creates value for everyone.

The Colorado Institute for Social Impact (CI4SI) was born from the combined passion and years of social enterprise experience from members of the Colorado Springs community. Join the Colorado Institute for Social Impact as we accelerate the evolution of business.
