The Rise of the Corporate Social Investor

The Rise of the Corporate Social Investor

Jul 2020

EVPA and the Stanford Social Innovation Review (SSIR) have teamed up to demonstrate how corporate social investors can align with their companies to maximise impact based on EVPA's research.

The topic of strategic alignment recently gained great momentum amongst Corporate Social Investors (CSIs), like corporate foundations, corporate impact funds, accelerators, and social businesses. At EVPA, we define strategic alignment as a mutual arrangement between a Corporate Social Investor and its affiliated company with the goal of enhancing the CSI’s social impact.

After a yearlong research on strategic alignment, involving 45 practitioners from CSIs, companies, and experts on corporate social investing and inclusive business strategies, we developed the first typology that describes the various ways in which a CSI and its affiliated company can align: nonmaterial alignment, thematic alignment, industry alignment and business alignment.
