Big Issue Invest is launching a Social Enterprise Investment Fund. This will provide risk capital for social enterprises that have the capacity for scale, profitability and significant social impact.
Through the Social Enterprise Investment Fund Big Issue Invest will be looking to finance the growth of existing social enterprises and businesses, but will also consider early stage businesses that have a strong business model and management. Investment may be used for a variety of purposes, for example, working capital, asset purchase or acquisitions of other businesses, converting them into social enterprises.
Investments will be from £50,000 to £500,000, with the possibility of additional future investment depending on the success of the business. Big Issue Invest seeks to be actively involved as a strategic partner, typically through Board representation. For further information please visit:
