What if the public sector had a way of funding innovative social programmes that it only had to pay for if they proved successful….
What if private impact investors could make a return on their investments in social programmes performed in cooperation with government organisations….
Welcome to the world of Social Impact Bonds.
Social Impact Finance is an intermediary which looks for impact investors to develop innovative social programmes under the banner of Social Impact Bonds. Their aim is to make social return and financial returns an inseparable goal. Social Impact Finance connects impact investors, government and social entrepreneurs with each other with the aim of realising social impact and a fair financial return. Social Impact Finance looks for sustainable funding for social entrepreneurs with social (preventive) programmes to scale-up proven effective interventions in other cities, provinces or nationally. Social Impact Bonds provide innovative impetus for structurally solving certain social problems and provide a new funding structure for investors and government.
