CARMEN ROMERO - FOUNDER & DIRECTOR
I have created this company with a vision to democratise impact. To make people and planet the main stakeholders of every business I work with. Impact touches all companies from startups, SMEs and larger institutions.
Over the past decade i have worked in the space of impact investing, UHNWI, family offices and social enterprises as well as with startups at various stages of their growth from ideation all the way to pre-seed or seed investment ready.
I have come across amazing individuals passionate about solving problems whether it relates to education, agriculture, technology or the environment.
The hurdles are very similar.
For startups and social entrepreneurs with great ideas, it is about creating a structure organic enough to grow, upscale and replicate in an agile manner.
For investors and family offices, they want to have access to meaningful and impactful companies and technologies. Oftentimes, they want to create their portfolio and involve their children to align their family values and reflect these in how they invest their money. They are mindful of stewardship and legacy. The financial institutions that serve them, do not necessarily have access or are aware of these impactful enterprises. They are usually “too small” to be on their radar. And so family offices and the likes go a step further by creating their own fund of funds or family office to cater for their needs for impact and change.
The time for Impact capacity building is now.
