On Thursday 21 January, GO Lab and Big Issue Invest, the social investment arm of The Big Issue, were proud to release the Exploring Social Investment – An Indigo Technical & Learning Report detailing their collaboration towards data sharing in the social outcomes contract sector.
The report showcases how GO Lab and Big Issue Invest (BII) worked together to publish the contract, finance and impact data for the investments made within Big Issue Invests’ Outcomes Investment Fund (OIF). The report launch coincided with GO Lab’s launch of the International Network for Data on Impact and Government Outcomes (INDIGO), GO Lab's emerging data collaborative which aims to foster better data for better social outcomes by supporting social investors like BII to share data on the outcomes contracts they work with.
As a result of this work, BII has announced that all of their investments made within the Outcomes Investment Fund will be shared on the INDIGO platform. This highlights BII’s commitment to transparency as a social investor with the ultimate aim of contributing to solutions to dismantle poverty.
