We invest in social enterprises that are working to solve pressing social and human problems with innovative and tested solutions. Key areas of intended impact include, but are not limited to: poverty alleviation, education, financial inclusion, health and wellness, re-skilling and up-skilling the next generation workforce, innovation to promote social, gender and economic equity, and innovation in the arts and cultural sectors. Enterprises solving issues related to agriculture, finance, energy, and the environment may be eligible, but are most aligned to UCeed Social Impact if they are making a meaningful impact for populations with barriers to access.
As an early-stage investor, we are looking for evidence that your innovation and business model have been tested with the customers and beneficiaries you seek to serve. We are looking for social entrepreneurs who are using innovative approaches to solving pressing social issues, and have a desire to measure and manage their intended social impact. We value social innovation, equity and inclusivity, collaboration, and those who bring perspective and a growth mindset to their approach.
Like you, UCeed Social Impact is committed to learning as we collectively embark on a journey to improve our communities, and as those needs change over time, we will evolve our investment approach to meet the evolving challenges.
