We have started a project to found a "Social Venture Capital" company which aims at giving risk capital to social entrepreneurs and help them to start their business. Right now we are looking for about 20 investors who think, that such a venture capital company is a really good idea. Everybody interested please contact me to get a short factsheet and/or a detailed business plan.
Christian, I am interested. Please send more info to jdekoz@gmail. You may also want to check out some recent publications by Arthur Wood, VP of Financing at Ashoka. He has been spearheading an effort to get the UK "CIC" and US "L3C" corporate structures adopted and set into law.
I would be interested to learn about the progress of your venture and about your approach in generell. May I have a look at the business plan and/ or executive summary? My email address: frank.jaksch@changenergy,org
I think this is a brilliant idea, there are lot of people out there eho have ideas but do not have the necessary resources to augment the ideas. Therefore it is critical to want to find ways and means to also come out of this financial crisis facing the world today. However, I will be happy to get more details about this initiative.
Thank you very much and hope to hear from you soon.
I am seeing more and more of Kiva a facilitator for donations into qualified needing businesses. In my project I see a need
to aggrigate the many small loans to do a bulk buying of needed supplys at a lower price and then break it down. That is
part of the so called Top Down Services meeting Bottom Up Actions.
