Impact investing: funding women entrepreneurs in social enterprises and non profits, globally

I wanted to reach out and post this note to all who are involved in social enterprises or non profits assisting women and girls. I am with an impact investing organization and you can find us online at

Our aim is to assist in making our clients investment ready by walking in the shoes of the funder in our examination of your website, marketing materials and business plans. We have found that too often our clients are too close to their mission (rightly so), and position themselves accordingly through their website and other materials. While this is commendable, it will not inspire funders to assist you. We take a step back and through a due diligence assessment, make your funding requests more cogent.

We can also link you into prospective funders: foundations (including family foundations), development banks, venture capital and corporations.

Please take a look at our attachment and let me know if we can assist in having you become more sustainable economically.

We would love to!
