Elevating women and indigenous enterprises as THE KEY solution
Women and indigenous communities comprise over half of the four billion people living in poverty each day. They face more challenges than men in raising capital, and yet they reinvest up to 90% of their income to improve the living standards of their communities. They also are known to produce more revenue with less capital. We focus on women and indigenous led regenerative enterprises to maximize the social impact of your dollar. We believe it is time to see these communities as the key solution to end poverty and bring sustainability, to see them as good investments and graduate them beyond micro-finance.
Community based impact.
The enterprises that Angels of Impact invests into are community based and therefore work in unity with and reinvesting back into their community. We therefore effectively multiply the impact of social investments for positive change. Whether you are looking to partner with Angels of Impact or invest in these community based social enterprises, your work with us is a positive movement towards sustainable impact. Do join our movement to end poverty and create a more equitable and regenerative world for all.
Angels of Impact celebrates our 4th Anniversary 17th May 2020
The past two years have been particularly momentous; here are a few highlights:
1. We successfully conducted our mentorship program called Women In Social Entrepreneurship (WISE) and completed a research paper about funding needs of 43 women-led social entrepreneurs in Myanmar, Thailand and Indonesia.
2. All of our partnering social enterprises which received direct funding paid back in full and one of them (Yellow Hammock) went on to receive $1M in funding from another source. Another which we facilitated matching funds for (Krakakoa), also went on to get followup funding from IIX.
3. Our corporate supporters such as Credit Suisse, Google, Bloomberg and Facebook continued to procure from the social enterprises for corporate gifts and bazaars.
4. We successfully partnered with ATIX and RSK to pilot a blockchain platform to track the impact of investments, which was funded by UNICEF Innovation Fund.
