The Milken Institute is proud to support the International Impact Investing Challenge, part of the growing movement among graduate business students to address large-scale global challenges. This year, we feature two IIIC teams -- Effortless Energy of the University of Chicago and UpSkill Capital of the Kellogg School -- that are converting impact investing ideas from theory to practice. Effortless Energy has developed a service contract that removes common barriers to residential energy-efficiency adoption through an innovative shared-savings model with homeowners. UpSkill Capital has created a new way to fund vocational training for young adults in India who are trapped in poverty. Join us to learn how these and other future leaders are reshaping the face of impact investing.
