combining social and cultural factors.
related to the different groups of people in society and their habits, traditions, and beliefs:
Before this technology company decided to target overseas markets to increase their revenue they researched the sociocultural environment of different locations throughout the world because certain components and practices of different regions could drastically affect their business model.
We love technology. We love technology that delivers a social impact. We love technology that understands various cultures while delivering a social impact. We invest in companies that can bring communities together, create multi-cultural dialogue platforms, generate opportunities and deliver a " social + cultural" impact all while making profits.
Supporting Technology Activism by creating dialogue platforms.
Enabling industry relevant education with eLearning tools.
Educating unskilled workers with technology platforms.
Generating opportunities by connecting creative industries to cultures.
Using technology to preserve art.
Advising policy makers to make better decisions which support art & culture businesses.
These are just some of the things that excite us.
What about you?
Technology that is sensitive to cultures and creates opportunities within communities can accelerate social impact. We believe that, Social and Cultural pilot projects that have technology at the core can be eventually replicated. Successful replication of social enterprises within a tightly knit network of niche communities delivers a measurable as well as a tangible social impact with a Global Reach.
SUMMITS AND CONFERENCES
We host close door fundraising summits for our portfolio of startups. We attend networking meetings that connect startups to investors.
We invest in the "seed stage" though we like to invest into social enterprise startups who can demonstrate early tangible results. We invest into teams that can get the startup off the ground real quick. We are "value" driven as opposed to "valuation driven". We build relationships for our startups and help create sustainable value that accelerates growth.
We are diligent with business review meetings. We ask our portfolio of companies a lot of questions to which we expect honest, detailed and precise answers. We keep our investors and donors updated with regular, honest precise reports. We believe that - The growth of a social enterprise is a consequence of its ability to remain focussed and lean.
We focus on startups incorporated in the US and EU and that might have operations across the world. We engage with for-profits as well as non-profits partly OR wholly focussed on a social impact cause. We look for a simple understandable as well as measurable business models that can solve complex social & cultural pain points.
We are a closely knit leadership team. Each of us is a senior advisor who is passionate about bringing various cultures together by using the tools of technology within the niche of social impact.
IF YOU COULD DO BETTER
We are in business because our donors and investors want us to be in business.
We are in business because social enterprises want us to be in business.
To balance this fine line, we invest only into a couple of startups each year.
We take up a board seat or a mentoring position in the startup that we invest into to help drive revenues and focus on the larger social cause.
