IDEAS has a major emphasis in consulting and training on impact investment in the developing world. It advises and does evaluation of each of the entities in whole investment value chain. IDEAS has played each of these roles so understands the process thoroughly. It also has created each of these types of entities. Who better to be a consultant or evaluator than one that knows the actors and their interrelations on different continents?
We actively participate in impact evaluation as members of the Social Impact Measurement and Management Task Force of the American Evaluation Association and have been chosen as experts to teach workshops in several national meetings. We are members of the Atlanta Area Evaluation Association, Social Value US and Social Value International. We participate with the Global Impact Investment Network, IRIS+, ImpactAlfa, Impact Entreprenuer, Catalyst 2030, Georgia Social Impact Collaborative, EvalCommunity, Socap, among others.
