Developed as a joint venture between the faculty and students of New York University's Stern, Wagner, and Law schools—the NYU Impact Investment Fund (NIIF) leverages the diverse expertise of business, public service, and law faculty to support student investors targeting social enterprises in the sectors of financial inclusion, environment, healthcare, aging, education, and food systems.

What We Do
NIIF students, with support from faculty and a formal Investment Committee, source, select, and diligence early-stage impact investments in targeted areas such as financial inclusion, environment, healthcare, aging, education, and food systems. The enterprises under consideration benefit from a dedicated due diligence process that sets them up for future fundraising success and, when approved for investments, receive capital and the boost of having an NYU Impact Investment Fund associated with them.
NIIF houses its capital within a donor-advised fund that executes NIIF’s investment decisions. Once realized, returns are reinvested into the fund in order to sustain and further its impact.
