Sim prints

  1. 1. Confidential 1 $200 million and growing non-profit social innovation fund, registered as a charity in the UK and 501(c)(3) in the US, was set up by a group of major government aid agencies who saw the need for an independent investment vehicle to bring a venture capital approach to development. Invests in social innovations that aim to improve the lives and opportunities of millions of people in the developing world living on less than $5 per day. Uses a range of financial instruments – including grants, equity, debt, and development impact bonds – to support social enterprises, for-profit firms, non-profit organizations, and researchers. Places rigorous evidence of impact at the core of the investment process to drive investment evaluation and decision making to ensure investments create impact. 37 investments and grants made since launch in 2014.
