Social Venture Fund
Launched in September of 2009, the Social Venture Fund is the first student-led impact investment fund and the first to close a deal among other such funds that have launched. SVF focuses exclusively on U.S. based, for-profit social enterprises and is dedicated to pursuing continued innovation in impact investing. It invests at least $50,000 in early stage companies that generate both financial and social returns. The fund focuses on companies that are responding to critical challenges within the Education, Food Systems, Environment, Health, and Urban Revitalization sectors. SVF also works closely with its portfolio companies on capacity building projects to support the growth and impact of its investments. SVF is led by approximately 40 MBAs and BBAs, nearly one-half of whom are pursuing dual-degrees in Education, Public, Environment, Health, Law and Public Policy.
