Impact Seed is Western Australia’s only dedicated intermediary for impact investment and social enterprise. Our focus is on market development, building capacity across both supply and demand for social impact investments in Western Australia. This is done in partnership with not-for-profits, social entrepreneurs, private impact investors, and State and Federal Governments.
Impact Seed supports social service providers to build sustainable and purpose-driven revenue streams to reduce their reliance on grant funding, enhance innovation, and release government capital for other critical investments.
Creation of a State Funding and Investment Framework is an opportunity for the State Government to actively support local social enterprises and develop the Western Australian impact investment market. This paper outlines a series of opportunities for consideration by the State Government to support private and not-for-profit businesses already undertaking social impact investments and innovating in their businesses models to actively support marginalised and disadvantaged communities in Western Australia.
