ImpactAlpha offers news and information covering the sustainable and impact investment markets. Our subscription includes the daily publication, The Brief, and ImpactSpace, a resource of over 10,000 companies and investors and over 4,000 impact investment deals. The Brief will be automatically emailed to registrants the day after you register for access to the ImpactAlpha subscription. 

Registration for the ImpactAlpha site is a two step process:

  1. First time users should register for ImpactAlpha with an HKS email address here. Click the Join Group button and enter your HKS email address. ImpactAlpha will email you a "magic link" to access the resource. Copy and paste the link into your preferred browser for research.
  2. After registering for a subscription, go directly to the ImpactAlpha site to view news stories. Click on the big blue alpha symbol in the bottom right of the screen (looks like X) and click on the Get Started link. When prompted, enter your hks email address to receive another "magic link". Paste the magic link, into the browser you were just using to access the site seamlessly. 


Q: Why am I not able to read stories on the ImpactAlpha site? I keep seeing these annoying popup screens that say I have exceeded my free articles for the month.

A: If you use different browsers, you must register separately in each browser by following step 2.  Open the magic link using the same browser that you used when you completed step 2. If you clear the cache of your browser, you will have to repeat step 2 again.

Q: Why am I not able to access stories linked from The Brief?

A: You will not be able to access stories linked from the The Brief unless you have completed step 2 for the browser that your link defaults to. Follow step 2 for that browser and you will have full access to stories on the site including stories linked from The Brief.
