People are at the core of our investment philosophy. We believe in people and their ideas, and we invest first and foremost in these rather than in a particular sector. While we have several sectors that remain our undeniable priorities, we envision ourselves above all as a people-driven investor. We back visionary doers and game-changers with a passion to make the world a better place for everyone, and a bold vision to match the scale of this ambitious goal.
Impact Venture supports businesses with a truly bold vision and a passion to solve the world’s most burning issues. By helping these ventures get off the ground and by nurturing their further growth, we seek to create a more sustainable future for all of us
What we value most:
Long-term impact is what we seek to support above all. Our aim is to empower those enterprises which boldly seek to tackle some of the greatest challenges of our time – both social and environmental ones, and we are confident that short-term solutions are not enough to address these challenges effectively. It is because we believe that truly sustainable solutions are those creating lasting impact, that we are prioritizing the sectors where technical ingenuity and hard work can produce long-term value.
Measurable outcomes are essential for assessing the impact we helped to create. We understand this impact in terms of a broad range of complex social and environmental outcomes; however, we do expect these outcomes to be quantifiable. As impact investing has clear, demonstrable objectives, being able to measure the results achieved is critical for us. Similarly, the financial targets are an important metric applied while assessing the outcomes: we seek not token, but competitive, market rate returns.
