Deliverables

We deliver social investment and matchmaking approaches for companies, social ventures and social investors.

On the one hand, societal problems present both considerable challenges for a company operations and broad opportunities to growth, through innovative social investment strategies.

On the other hand, social investors are finding it difficult to source investable social ventures – as early stage social ventures are missing the technical skills, access to markets and the finance to scale up their social impact and attract funding.

360impact creates bridges between companies, social ventures and social investors by mapping out frameworks for societal and business value creation. We develop integrated platforms to enable strategic and sustainable partnerships between companies, social ventures and social investors to raise social entrepreneurs into risk categories that are acceptable for social investors.

  • Companies engage financially and operationally with social ventures with offering products or services relevant to their value chain.
  • Social investors invest in social ventures partnering with companies.
  • Social ventures receive strategic and management support, access to market from companies and funding from social investors.

We draw on the research of the European Venture Philanthropy Association as well as other think tanks.
