Social Impact Businesses come in many shapes, sizes and structures, so we have set out some guidelines and criteria below to help you understand Impact Seed’s lens on business, and whether we can help you.
Impact Business Criteria
Impact Seed works with enterprises that have a social impact mission at their core.
We focus primarily investable impact businesses that exist to directly address social disadvantage, environmental degradation, or both. They must deliver direct and measurable social outcomes in the following areas:
- Uplift out of poverty or social and economically disadvantage through employment (or direct assistance), AND/OR;
- Primary health and educational outcomes for demonstrably socially and economically disadvantaged communities, AND/OR;
- Environmental and sustainability outcomes, AND;
- Must integrate and socially inclusive and sustainable value and supply chain as part of their mission.
There’s a tonne of support within the startup ecosystem, and if you don’t align with Impact Seed’s criteria, we may be able to refer you on to other fellow organisations that will be better able to assist your ongoing development journey. Please get in touch if you think we can assist.
