Take your philanthropy to the next level and become a funder of one of IVN’s 3 Social Business Investment Funds.
As a participant, your philanthropic dollars will support a specific portfolio of high impact potential social businesses that have been selected with great oversight by IVN Investment Committees, and you will receive bi-annual social investor reports summarizing the ROI and SROI of each relevant portfolio company.
“The primary problem with charity programs is that they remain perpetually dependent on donations. They cannot stand on their feet. Charity money goes out to do good things, but that money never comes back. It is a one-way route. However, if a charity can be converted into a social business it becomes a powerful undertaking because now the money invested is recycled endlessly: A charity dollar has one life; a social business dollar has endless lives! That’s the power of social business. A social business is a business where an investor aims to help others without taking any financial gain himself, while generating enough income to cover costs.” Muhammed Yunus, Noble Prize Winner
Our capital is most often deployed to social businesses in the form of low interest rate loans and upon repayment the dollars are reinvested back out in 1-2 additional ventures during the lifespan on the Fund – leveraged, venture philanthropy at its very best.
