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 zero tolerance for violence against children.
Save the Children knows that traditional development approaches alone are not enough to achieve these ambitious goals for children. To make a meaningful difference in children’s lives for the next 100 years, more support and money is needed for innovative and entrepreneurial approaches. It’s our mission to find and back those that demonstrate early success and provide financing options to help them grow their businesses and achieve social impact at scale.
Our Impact Investment Fund is uniquely positioned to scale impact by pairing the technology of our founders with Save the Children’s relationships and footprint across the globe. Supported by Save the Children Global Ventures and leveraging Save the Children’s network of programs and partners, the Fund is able to draw on unparalleled access to expertise, dealflow, and post-investment support.
We are humbled by the interest of social entrepreneurs seeking to work with us, and emboldened by the early success of our first fund. In line with our ambitions, our team will continue to build our capabilities to contribute to measurable social impact and to generate financial returns for our investor believers.
