At Nordic Impact Funds, we believe in business-driven impact. We want to alleviate poverty in an economically sustainable way where impact and financial return goes hand in hand. We target businesses where positive social impact for low-income households is the result of commercial success and an embedded part of the business model – either by creating opportunities for raising long term income or by the provision of new, affordable and highly needed products or services. As an example, we invest in agri-businesses that are linking small holder farmers to a commercial value chain and we invest in companies providing basic services like water, sanitation etc.
As a gender smart investor, we want to create both jobs and income for women at the base of the pyramid and strengthen gender diversity in the management of the companies we invest in.
