Social Finance connects investors and entrepreneurs that are interested in both making money and helping to make the world a better place.
FOR INVESTORS, social finance is an approach to managing money that aims to deliver social and/or environmental benefits, and in most cases, a financial return.
FOR ENTREPRENEURS, social finance sits halfway between a charitable donation and a loan, enabling business owners like you with a social mission to create impact at a scale that compliments traditional philanthropic support or government contributions. Essentially, social finance connects both investors and entrepreneurs that are interested in both making money and helping to make the world a better place.
