Social Impact Investing

Developing tomorrow’s societies

For many years, social initiatives were considered as social services that could not be consolidated as profitable enterprises. However, the world of entrepreneurship has changed and today, projects that improve and benefit the community can be consolidated as first level companies of high potential, as well as be considered impact investments.

What is social impact investment? Are companies with a new behavioral revolution as well as a new perspective and projects that focus on solving social problems with the objective of benign self-sufficient. Currently, social enterprises are profitable, and can be considered as impact investments. It is not only about philanthropy, it’s about finding a balance between sustainable projects and high profitability comparable to first-world companies.

The significance of these companies as a catalyst for change is even more evident due to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set by the United Nations in 2015 and which are expected to be accomplished by 2030. These objectives set goals for responsible production, dignified jobs, economic growth, and social issues including: social inequality, food shortage, quality education or problems of equity, among others.

The recent pandemic forced to rethink the dynamics of the planet. Many companies had to reformulate how they work in order to analyze environmental problems and social equality from new perspectives.

Based on this, we understood much better what a social impact company requires. It is not enough to recycle, but to take actions that reflect a true impact on society as a whole. For example, a fashion company can generate a positive impact by selecting local suppliers, choosing traditional artisans or manufacturers and encouraging fair trade.

One of WORTEV CAPITAL priorities is to connect ventures, which with the support of venture capital, can contribute to achieving these global challenges. For this, we seek companies with a social impact vision, to guide them and allow them to become a self-sufficient business model, which, in turn, favors non-prioritized sectors such as indigenous communities and senior citizens (rising population), as well as promoting proposals with the potential to develop the societies of tomorrow.
