Newest Meetup Series, "Social Impact for Startups”  is coming soon!

Peace Data Standard - a Common Standard to Measure Social Impact

Mark Nelson, Co-Director of the Peace Innovation Institute will talk about how the  Peace Data Standard can catalyze new investment toward impact startups.  The Peace Data Standard establishes a defined data format that will allow anyone who uses technology for engaging with others, to measure their peace impact, both as it happens, and, more importantly, over time.

The Peace Data Standard addresses a capital dilemma for both investors and companies who are looking to invest in or considered ESG Index compliant.  Through our research, we have found that investors are having difficulty defining, discovering and investing in companies that fulfill the Social aspect of ESG.  Likewise, companies don’t have a consistent way of demonstrating their social impact.  The Peace Data Standard provides a common reference for companies to identify, monitor and report the positive peace they create in the world and it also gives investors a common reference to evaluate and make strategic investments that reward peace creation.
