About IIX:

IIX (Impact Investment Exchange) and IIX Foundation have played a pioneering role in developing and leading the global impact investing space. IIX and IIX Foundation’s work is focused on women empowerment, climate action and opportunity for disadvantaged communities — all under the umbrella of inclusive finance.

IIX has received numerous awards for its work including the Oslo Business for Peace Award, the Nobel Prize for Business.
