About Us

we believe

in innovation...

that business can inspire us...

that a business with a mission is a powerful force that creates value for everyone...

that the definition of success in business can be expanded...

We must think beyond the bottom line and look to business with a higher purpose to lead us in the new Impact Economy. We believe Social Impact can evolve capitalism and that social impact businesses can inspire others to strive for a higher purpose. We believe Social Entrepreneurs can reshape the economy, provide enormous societal value and bring elegant solutions to social problems. We believe Social Impact can align a business goals and measurement of their impact on the community. We seek to bring people together in this sector to build on each other’s successes and failures, evolving business with collaborative competition. We seek to accelerate the evolution of buisness, starting in our community.

we are shaping the new economy...

We are creating Social Impact...

Welcome to the Colorado Institute for Social Impact! We are passionate about the impact that the Fourth Sector of the economy creates for our community.

This is a new sector of the economy that merges mission with margin and creates a Social Impact Business.

A Social Impact Business is the outcome of a socially driven business or organization that changes a community for the better. Social Impact can refer to a number of potential benefits of the model (i.e. people, planet, or economy). Businesses and Organizations that create social impact have this effort woven into the core of their products, employees, culture, and community awareness. For the CI4SI model, we typically include Social Enterprise, Social Business, Conscious Capitalist and Certified B Corp/Public Benefit Corporation in this category.
