The chapter provides an overview of impact investing and how to finance social entrepreneurs. Impact investing is an emerging field of practice that evolves as we speak. As such, we are all still in a learning mode and practitioner networks such as the European Venture Philanthropy Association (EVPA) with research functions, as well as academic institutions and researchers play an important role to facilitate the learning. In this chapter, we build on existing research, and make recommendations based on what we consider "best practice", although we acknowledge that impact investors use a spectrum of approaches.
