A diverse social investment market

We are striving to build a social investment market that works better for everyone, and address the barriers that create inequity in the sector.


Engagement and Market Building

Our mission is to grow investment in social impact by engaging with and supporting the widest and most diverse range of investors, entrepreneurs and other partners. Equity and inclusion is central both to our impact and to the way we work so we are committed to identifying and removing barriers to any groups from accessing or benefitting from investment capital.
