North Sky’s Scott Barrington Discusses the Sustainable Investment Landscape with New Private Markets

Minneapolis, MN –  North Sky Capital was recognized in New Private Market’s inaugural Impact 20 ranking, the publication’s ranking of the world’s top 20 largest private markets impact investors. At $627 million in capital raised between January 2016 and March 2021 and as part of the “original guard” of impact private equity, North Sky ranked 15th on the list.
