Social entrepreneurs around the world are harnessing novel business models to fuel widespread social change. By linking profit with purpose, they are creating solutions with the potential to scale and solve entrenched development challenges. But these ambitious innovators are often undercapitalized and don’t have access to the resources they need for their ventures to first survive and then thrive.
Our impact investing arm, Help Meet Shine Ventures (HMSV), partners with these pioneers to iterate and scale bold solutions to the world’s toughest challenges. Beyond investing the right kind of capital — which includes equity, convertible debt, and blended finance — HMSV provides advice, technical support, and connections across Help Meet Shine’ global network of corporate partners, governments, civil society, and the private sector.
