Impact First Investments manages the first Israeli investment vehicle specifically designed to leverage local technology and innovation to create global social impact. The vehicle aggregates capital from Israel and abroad to make early stage and follow on investments in globally scalable companies that provide technological solutions to global social, medical, and environmental challenges. To achieve its expected social and financial returns, its management team will leverage venture and debt capital, its vast experience in managing both financial-first and impact-first investments, and its extensive international network of business leaders and industry experts with the Israeli government’s proactive policy and support for technology oriented companies and projects.

The vehicle’s management team is comprised of seasoned investors, managers at leading Israeli VCs, and third sector executives. The Fund is attracting significant pro bono assistance from the business community in Israel and intends to leverage this in its day-to-day activities by involving business leaders on the fund level and in its portfolio companies.



Financial description

The Fund’s investment strategy is built on an equity and debt financing structure, and therefore does not solely rely on exits, but rather a combination of equity returns and loan repayment to achieve its expected financial goals. The Fund aims to return market rates to its investors while it maintains its portfolio’s highest possible Social Return on Investment (SROI).
