IMPACT UTAH 2015: A Purpose Investor Network Conference
Monday, January 19, 2015 at 3:30 PM - Tuesday, January 20, 2015 at 8:30 PM (MST)
THE PURPOSE ECONOMY:
During the 20th century, the Industrial Economy gave way to the Information Economy. Already in the 21st century, the information economy is transitioning into the Purpose Economy. Click here to understand why this is happening.
The Purpose Economy is a new era of innovation, creation, and social consciousness that promises to lift our economy and other global economies through productivity and jobs that will solve simultaneously solve social problems in the areas of leadership, education, health and healthcare, energy, homelessness, poverty relief, etc.
Some call it the new venture capital and others the new philanthropy. Impact investing merges philanthropy and investing to provide capital for both for-profit and nonprofit social innovations while at the same time growing an investor's financial wealth. It is built on the principles of self-reliance found in the proverb that encourages us to teach a man to fish rather than giving him one. In addition to teaching the man to fish, impact investing also buys the man a fishing pole and asks him to pay it back from the sale of surplus fish.

UTAH AND THE PURPOSE ECONOMY:
The author of the bestselling book "The Purpose Economy," Aaron Hurst, believes that Utah is well-positioned to become a global leader in the 21st Century economy. Because Utahans are both generous and cause motivated, while being educated and hard-working, they have the potential to provide Purpose enterprises with the perfect blend of financial, human and political capital needed to advance those enterprises to change the world.
UTAH AND IMPACT INVESTING:
As evidenced by the number of international poverty relief programs which Utahans have created and funded that give the poor in global nations a "hand-up" instead of a "hand-out," the of self-reliance that are part of impact investing and micro finance resonate with Utahans. Utah's pioneer "can-do" culture promotes innovation and entrepreneurship which when combined with socially motivated investment dollars create the ideal formula for successful Purpose companies.
