Our Approach

Just like the social enterprises in which we invest, Impact Ventures UK also has great ambitions. Our primary ambition is to scale purpose: that means accelerating the growth of innovative businesses and expanding their reach across the communities they benefit.

Our strategic investments bridge the gaps that exist across funding, lending and grant sources by providing the right capital needed for growing social enterprises. As a social impact growth capital investor, IVUK is prepared to take on early scaling risks. We are a confident investor with enough funding capacity to see our investees through with additional capital when the need arises.

IVUK’s investment approach is driven by the collective expertise of our investment team and investment committee. Together they are committed to conducting due diligence across all of our requisite criteria before taking the next step in the investment process. While our standardised approach is both rigorous and strongly evidence based, IVUK is also known in the social enterprise market for its collaborative relationships with its investees.
