About Us

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.
