What we do
Impact Generation Partners advises, invests in and supports enterprises that deliver financial as well as social and/or environmental returns. In addition, we educate and advise a range of investors on how to engage in impact investing. We are passionate about and committed to building the impact investing ecosystem in Australia.
We provide corporate advisory services to for-purpose enterprises including: assisting them to become investor ready; raising capital (debt and equity) through our deep network of investors; mergers and acquisitions; investor relations (including reporting on both financial and social/environmental metrics); and on-going strategic support.
We invest in enterprises whose innovative and disruptive products or services intrinsically solve social or environmental problems as well as provide financial returns. We back passionate founders and teams who are obsessed with building successful businesses that provide a measureable positive social and/or environmental impact.
What we believe
We are motivated by our belief that the companies that solve social or environmental challenges will be the companies that will also do well financially. It is our view that enterprises can generate above market returns as well as providing social or environmental impact. We believe that, in conjunction with philanthropy, investment capital is necessary to tackle the vast challenges the world is facing. We work with enterprises that are solving these issues and the people and institutions that want to invest in these businesses.
