“Purpose is not the sole pursuit of profits but the animating force for achieving them – profits are in no way inconsistent with purpose”

Larry Fink, CEO of Blackrock.

Impact Investing has been described as profit with purpose and capital with conscience. There is a growing awareness that business can and must play a great role in creating a more equitable and sustainable world.

As a result, many sophisticated investors are mobilising their resources to generate market returns while meeting society’s needs. They are engaged in Impact Investing.

Impact Investors back companies that have excellent growth and financial return potential, while also meeting social and economic needs. These companies may be creating clean energy, educational technology or life-enhancing medical devices.

They are also creating jobs and stimulating technology ecosystems and centres of excellence. They advance the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. By deploying capital in these companies, investors are generating what is termed a double IRR – a return for both the investor and society.

Impact Investing has grown to over $500 billion invested according to the Global Impact Investing Network. Deloitte predicts that 50% of professionally managed funds in the US will be ESG compliant by 2025.

Studies have shown that impact investments perform at least as well if not better than conventional investments.

VentureWave Capital is proud to work with Irish investors and members of the Diaspora seeking to back scalable companies that also deliver a significant benefit to society.

At the same time Impact Investing will have very positive benefits for society in general and Ireland in particular.

We want not just to follow but to show and promote the principles of Impact Investing.

We are the first Irish Signatories of the World Bank/IFC Operating Principles of Impact Measurement and are members of the Global Impact Investing Network.
