Opportunity to Impact:
An Investment Assessment

In order for private investment to strengthen historically underserved communities, investments must be viewed as part of an ecosystem – where each project’s social, economic, and/or environmental impact helps build prosperous and inclusive local economies. Unlocking this potential through incentives such as Opportunity Zones will require careful intention and collaboration with communities.

The Center for Public Impact (CPI), advised by the Beeck Center for Social Impact + Innovation, created Opportunity to Impact (O2I).

O2I is a simple, yet rigorous guide for evaluating an investment’s potential for positive social, economic, and environmental impact – what we’ll simply call ‘impact’. Applying to both real estate and operating business investments, this tool complements financial due diligence by helping project sponsors create a plan to achieve a community’s and investors’ shared impact objectives.

We estimate that this assessment will take about 30 minutes to 1 hour to complete. You can save your progress and return later via the ‘save progress’ button.
