Preparing for Impact Investment
Are you ready for the next stage of growth for your business?
Then a focus on both intention and measurability is absolutely critical! As impact investors we have seen the unintended consequences of focussing on one without the other. Preparing for investment is not just about designing your Investment Memorandum, there are deep questions you need to ask around intention and measurability.
Our focus is on positioning you to be ready for investment, not just jumping straight into a capital raise. We understand the need for firm governance, strong accountability and effective systems of measurement and can assist you identify the right capital mix for your investment.
”“When we started our impact investment initiatives, we saw a lot of similar livelihood projects. They lacked innovation and they had no connection to investors or sources of finance. Benefit Capital brought us experienced investors with extensive social enterprise development experience, something other organisations lacked. Their systems to measure and quantify social benefits were outstanding and we had every confidence in their ability to deliver. I struggled to find anybody that was as convincingly commercial and impactful as Benefit Capital.”
