About Us

Impact + Returns

As an impact investment fund, our overall goal is to generate both sustainable social impact and financial returns, with the longer-term aspiration to catalyze more impact investors and entrepreneurs.

100% Recycled Capital

All the financial returns to the fund are recycled and reinvested into new companies and opportunities to further expand the impact and reach.
