Impact thesis

The primary SDGs targeted by the Fund include quality education, good health, no poverty, gender equality, zero hunger, life on land, clean water and sanitation, affordable and clean energy, sustainable cities and communities, and industry, innovation and infrastructure. Throughout the world, local fund managers stand at the nexus of identifying, funding and supporting the most promising entrepreneurs and companies. Quality local fund managers offer the unique ability to leverage investments of millions of dollars into generation of hundreds of millions in revenue in local economies, employment for tens of thousands, and delivery of essential products and services that can scale and improve the lives of millions. We expect our investee fund managers to have impact in three primary dimensions: 1) market development - fostering innovation among SGBs that deliver sustainable products and services in underdeveloped and developing economies through their investments; 2) catalytic early stage capital - providing access to early-stage and early-growth capital to entrepreneurs in forms best suited to their needs; and 3) end clients/systems - in businesses that sustainably address specific needs of local low- to middle-income communities with solutions that matter and make a difference to their lives. Assuming an initial $100M Fund, we expect our investee fund managers will initially provide early-stage financing to over 200 local SGB and improve over 8 million lives by 2028.
