2. Reid, Todd Germaine. Making an impact in public health through philanthrocapitalism : the PaCT Project and ImPaCT Commercial Ventures ; PaCT Project and ImPaCT Commercial Ventures .

Degree: M.B.A., 2011, MIT

Large-scale epidemiologic longitudinal cohort studies are a distinct area of epidemiology and public health. To conduct such studies, it often requires exorbitant resources. African collaborators and a team of Harvard scientists have initiated what is groundbreaking to the field of epidemiology and will be the largest investigations into lifestyle ever conducted in history: The Africa/Harvard School of Public Health Partnership for Cohort Research and Training (PaCT), a four-nation, large scale longitudinal cohort study comprising 500,000 study participants in Uganda, South Africa, Tanzania, and Nigeria, investigating lifestyle factors and their relation to chronic diseases( i.e., cancer, heart diseases, mental illness, diabetes, etc.). This cohort study will be paired with an innovative philanthropic venture capital firm, ImPaCT Commercial Ventures. This business entity will be responsible for the commercialization of the intellectual property (IP) generated from the cohort study, decades-long collection of behavioral and genetic "Big Data" (primarily collected through mobile phones) from the study's 500,000 study participants. A select group of corporations will have semi-exclusive rights to the intellectual property to create and refine innovative products (goods and services) that help prevent chronic diseases and other public health threats in Africa, and they will also serve as limited partners in the ImPaCT Commercial Fund. This venture Fund will support a portfolio of entrepreneurial start-up ventures that also develop innovation around chronic disease prevention. ImPaCT will profit from this commercialization of IP and by equity ownership in the start-up ventures. ImPaCT, structured as a "Benefit" Corporation, will earmark some of its profit to help sustain the resource-intensive and expensive longitudinal cohort study.

3. Zhou, Jing, S.M. Sloan School of Management. The development of impact investing and implications for China .

Degree: 2017, MIT

In recent years, impact investing has been developing rapidly and attracting broader attention. According to the JP Morgan and GIIN Annual Impact Investor Survey, the number of global impact investors increased approximately eightfold between 1995 and 2015. While still facing challenges and competition, impact investing represents a significant trend in investment. The concept was brought to China several years ago but is still at an early stage. This paper will discuss the development and features of impact investing, with an analysis of and comparison with the Chinese market, to propose suggestions for its future development. The research in this paper is based on the analysis of recent publications and industry reports, impact investing case studies, and interviews with impact investors and social enterprises. The study also includes analysis of the limitations and difficulties of impact investing globally and in China, with suggestions for future development. Advisors/Committee Members: Charles Kane (advisor).
