field-building

We believe that making direct investments in enterprises led by people from low-income communities can have a transformative effect on the future of those communities. But we know that’s not enough. We also have to address the structural conditions that give rise to our unequal economy.

To do that, the Boston Impact Initiative engages in field-building initiatives that challenge conventional beliefs about ownership, competition, profit-making and control—and advance fresh perspectives on democratizing investment, strengthening relationships and building solidarity.
