Video: The Investors’ Circle, Early Stage Impact Investors
With the recent news that the SJF Institute was merging with the Investors’ Circle, and the launch of the Global Catalyst Initiative, what better time to share a video featuring the work of the Investors’ Circle? This San Francisco-based network of nearly 150 angel investors has been investing into early-stage enterprises addressing social and environmental issues since 1992. Take a look at their Investment Statistics here.
As Shawn Smith described yesterday, seed stage funding is a critical bottleneck in impact investing at the moment. The Global Catalyst Initiative addresses that challenge to an extent; the Investors’ Circle has been doing it for nearly two decades. This video gives an overview of their work and impact.
We invite you to share your thoughts about this video below. How does this fit with your work?
