Why is Impact Investing necessary?
Philanthropy is not enough
Government and private institutions recognize that the globalized world faces challenges of such magnitude that public resources and philanthropy are not enough to solve them.
The power of the private sector
The private sector moves five times more capital than public and social sectors. As such, it can play a crucial role in solving social and environmental challenges we currently face.
Impact and profitability
Profitability and impact have always been considered to be on opposite sides of the spectrum, but this paradigm is changing. Impact investing seeks to solve society’s biggest challenges while generating economic profitability.
“Every endowment today should be ESG and Impact:
Impact private equity, impact venture capital, impact real state…
it is the only way we can achieve Sustainable Development Goals,
there is a 30 trillion gap needed to fill to achieve them by 2030.”

What’s our impact?
Impact of startups
The impact generated by our portfolio companies builds on three social and environmental challenges targeted in our investment thesis.
Non-financial support for startups
We provide hands-on support, we promote the culture of impact and we seek alignment between a company’s business model and its impact strategy.
Covering early stages
We invest in impact startups in early stages in order to promote all those solutions that do not find financing in these phases.
