Are impact investments on the rise?

Updated: Oct 13, 2020

Typical investor diversifies asset classes, sectors, regions and seeks financial benefit in exchange. Now, as Millennials start to gain more and more equity in the markets, the social brainstorm-how-to-the-wall-of-ideasmpact investing is on the rise (based on Global Impact Investing Network, current estimated market size is at $715 billion). There is a significant shift into impact investing and sustainability. Even though it is a relatively new phenomenon, the market is growing fast and investors are optimistic overall about its development and expect increased scale and efficiency in the future. For some investors, it is no brainer to accept lower financial returns in lieu of generating an environmental impact or helping to save the Planet Earth. Fact: global population of bees is diminishing very rapidly. What if one day we wake up without bees in the world? No bees, no pollination, no chance for humans to survive.


One technological solution to tackle this problem is brought out by OSBeehives. It provides IoT sensor solutions to commercial and hobbyist beekeepers. The flagship product BuzzBox, provides a 24/7 monitoring to help beekeepers maintain healthy honey bees while lowering labor costs and increasing honey productivity. The mobile app includes standalone features allowing beekeepers to manually log hive observations, analyze honeybee health and share questions and observations with other beekeepers around the world.
