Angels of Impact believes that we can end poverty and give the impoverished control of their lives. We do this by supporting social enterprises working on poverty alleviation, to grow into sustainable businesses.
We focus on women as good investments, as A.I. aims to maximize the social impact of money. And by working with enterprises, which work with many women producing responsibly, we get better scale of impact--it's about getting the most effective use of resources.
Our angels are focused on the long-term success of the impact businesses that A.I. supports and helps to market their products and services. So they flow resources to the entrepreneurs who are too big for micro-finance but too small for more traditional impact investors.
Supporting impact businesses is what the Monitor Group calls ‘enterprise philanthropy’, and it is resources that can be recycled to do more and more good.
