Impact Investing

Our Impact work focuses on fostering gender equality and diversity within the entrepreneurial landscape by accelerating the success of women founders, including women founders from under-represented and under-served backgrounds.

Through our Impact Fund we are aiming to invest in women from socio-economically disadvantaged backgrounds and from under-served and under-represented backgrounds and communities, including but not limited to members of the LGBTQ+ community, or those with visible and/or non-visible disabilities.
 

Our primary goal is to empower women entrepreneurs across financial, operational, networking, and mentorship aspects.  By providing them with access to resources and opportunities, we seek to level the playing field and contribute to a more equitable startup ecosystem.

 

Our ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance) strategy encompasses responsible investing practices.  We prioritise diversity in our own team, promote a culture of inclusion, and implement sustainable business practices.  We also measure the impact of our investments on women-led ventures through metrics like funding raised, job creation, and leadership positions.

 

Regular impact reporting will ensure transparency and accountability.  We will track key performance indicators (KPIs), including:

  • the number of women-led ventures supported

  • funding raised

  • partnerships formed

  • mentorship engagement

 

By sharing these metrics, we will showcase our progress and inspire further action, as well as strengthening our role in contributing to a more sustainable and equitable future for all.

 

Impact Ventures Group’s impact strategy aligns with the following United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs):

 

  • Goal 5 - Gender Equality:  We directly support this goal by focusing on empowering women entrepreneurs and addressing the gender disparities within the startup ecosystem.

  • Goal 8 - Decent Work and Economic Growth: By providing financial, operational, and networking support to women founders, we contribute to creating decent work opportunities and promoting economic growth.

  • Goal 10 - Reduced Inequality:  Our efforts to level the playing field for women entrepreneurs contribute to reducing gender-based inequalities within the entrepreneurial landscape.

  • Goal 17 - Partnerships to Achieve the Goals: Collaborating with others.

 

Impact Ventures Group is deeply committed to tracking and measuring the positive changes we are making in line with the broader global sustainability agenda.

 

We are currently seeking corporate partners to join us in our mission by contributing to our Impact Investing fund as part of their ESG initiatives.  In return we can offer a seat on our Impact Investing board, as well as full impact reporting that can be incorporated into annual reports.
