Latimpacto, a not-for-profit organization, brings together philanthropists and social investors (foundations, corporations, investors, family offices, professional services, academia and the public sector), in order to mobilize capital (human, intellectual, financial) towards social purpose organizations (SPOs) by using the principles of venture philanthropy.

Investors for impact

Investors for impact support and catalyze innovative solutions to social and environmental problems, taking on risks that no other actor is willing to take. Investors for impact apply the following three core practices:

Tailored Financing

Choosing the most suitable financial instrument(s) to support an SPO. These instruments include grant, debt/loan, equity, and hybrid financial instruments. The choice of the financial instrument(s) depends on a number of factors, such as the investor for impact’s willingness to take risk, or the SPO’s business model and stage of development.

Non-financial Support (NFS)

Providing support services to a social purpose organisation in order to maximise its social impact, increase its financial sustainability or strengthen its organisational resilience.

Impact Measurement & Management (IMM)

Measuring and monitoring the change created by an organisation’s activities and using this information/data to refine activities in order to increase positive outcomes and reduce potential negative ones.
