Investing in startups and social enterprises
Save the Children has ambitious goals: for all children to receive a quality basic education, for no child to die of a preventable cause before their fifth birthday, and for violence against children to be no longer tolerated.
We know that traditional development approaches alone are not enough to achieve these ambitious goals. To make a meaningful difference in children’s lives, more effort and money needs to flow to innovative and entrepreneurial approaches.
Save the Children’s Impact Investment Funds have been established to raise funding from investors and provide loans and equity investments to help grow startups and social enterprises that are improving the lives of underserved children and families.
Supported by Save the Children Global Ventures and leveraging Save the Children’s global network of programs and partners, the Fund helps social entrepreneurs and enterprises working on the social problems aligned with Save the Children’s mission to scale.
