'A fascinating blueprint for a hope-filled future underpinned by the social power of impact investing.' - Kristalina Georgieva, Managing Director, International Monetary Fund, Former CEO, World Bank Group

"Capitalism isn't immoral, it's amoral - it's a wild beast that needs to be led. Here Sir Ronnie provides the core operating manual for those seeking to do good while also doing well." - Bono, Lead Singer of U2 and Co-Founder of The Rise Fund

'Impact is a new and very important idea to reshape and save our economic system.' - Paul Romer, Nobel Prize in Economics, 2018

Throughout the world, capitalism and democracy are being challenged with great force. The world must change, but we cannot change it by throwing money at old ideas that no longer work. We need a new path to a new world where inequality is shrinking, where natural resources are regenerated, and people can benefit from shared prosperity.

This is the world being created by the Impact Revolution.

Pre-eminent international investor, entrepreneur, philanthropist and social finance innovator, Sir Ronald Cohen, has dedicated two decades to leading the Impact Revolution to achieve real social and environmental change. As one of the founders of venture capital, which ushered in the Tech Revolution, he builds on his years of personal experience to deliver a compelling account of how impact investing is reshaping capitalism.

Whether you're an aspiring young entrepreneur, an established business person, an investor, a philanthropist, or somebody in government - or are interested, as a consumer or employee, in companies doing good and doing well at the same time - this book is a sure fire way to find out how you can play a role in changing the world.

Impact Reviews

'A fascinating blueprint for a hope-filled future underpinned by the social power of impact investing.'

-- Kristalina Georgieva, Managing Director, International Monetary Fund, Former CEO, World Bank Group
Capitalism isn't immoral, it's amoral - it's a wild beast that needs to be led. Here Sir Ronnie provides the core operating manual for those seeking to do good while also doing well. -- Bono, Lead Singer of U2 and Co-Founder of The Rise Fund
Impact is a new and very important idea to reshape and save our economic system. -- Paul Romer, Nobel Prize in Economics, 2018
The book is timely, visionary, bold...and thoroughly persuasive. -- Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks
This is not only a masterpiece but an historically important book-a powerful intervention in our thinking on harnessing financial resources for the good. It intervenes with profoundly compassionate imagination, and genius, where neither governments nor private philanthropy have prevailed. Each paragraph, each page, brim over with visionary scope and micro-textured examples of exactly what Sir Ronald has been so brilliantly engineering, and the many sectors in which the " Impact Revolution" is so well instantiated and advancing. Written with great lucidity and persuasive power, Impact is the most genuinely hopeful and important work I've read in this arena in decades. -- Peter Sacks, Professor of English and American Literature and Language, Harvard University
