Social Venturing

Social venturing is using expertise, vision and financial resources to invest in projects that are inaccessible to commercial investors and ineligible for government subsidies.

Social venturing involves many activities used in the world of traditional investment (private equity), such as risk management and ensuring return on investments. However, by visibly adding a third factor, i.e. social impact, you can explicitly capitalise on the potential goodwill of society much more than is the case with traditional investments. This considerably reduces the natural resistance to accept, for example, investments in innovation. The consequence of this is that a significant amount of time and money is saved during the go-to-market phase. In other words: a considerable increase in the critical success factors in this category eventually leads to management of the risks and costs involved with innovation. This ensures that risk/return assessment and impact assessment go hand in hand.
