Just launched! Social Venture Impact Investing: the Canadian Landscape

Private debt and private equity remain the most common types of impact investments both globally and in Canada. Our latest report looks at the market dynamics of social venture impact investing. Based on our database of social ventures in Canada, we found a minimum of $159M annual investment demand from early-stage social ventures ($48M if we exclude Series A funding). We identify a major funding gap for ventures at the “transition pre-seed” stage. At the same time, 73% of investors studied indicated a commitment to developing their impact investment practice.

How might the social innovation and social finance community best serve these social ventures? Read our report here.
