Our 5-year vision is to develop a thriving and innovative impact investment market in WA that leverages this state’s greatest strengths, which include its natural and geographical advantages, a resources rich public and private investment sector, and exceptional entrepreneurial talent.
We specialise in origination and deal sourcing for impact investors, impact investment management and assisting with raising capital
We utilise impact management frameworks to understand the impact ogranisations or program have on communities and the environment.
We support with investment readiness building for impact ventures, impact venture incubations and help existing businesses to transition into impact.
We are building both
supply + demand for
Impact Seed is Western Australia’s only dedicated capacity builder for impact investment and social enterprise development. Our role is in market development on both supply and demand sides for impact investment with government, not-for-profits, corporates, foundations and family offices.
Our team has led some of Western Australia’s key impact management and outcomes planning projects. These have included the whole-of-sector outcomes measurement framework with the WA Government in partnership with WACOSS, B-Lab’s B-Corp certification and the B Consultant program, the review for Woodside’s $20M Development Fund, development of Cerberus Frontier’s Emerging Markets Fund ESG(I) Strategy and undertaking the Pilbara Cultural Land Management Project.
How we do it
Impact Seed is WA’s only social enterprise and impact investment deal-focused intermediary and market builder – aiming to fun organisations and initiatives that balance ‘doing good’ with financial return.
We have created a range of free tools and resources here for social enterprises and impact businesses to guide them in the establishment and validation journey, and build towards taking on impact investment.
Impact 2 Innovate (I2I) is a landmark three-year program to provide capacity building support and investment readiness support to Western Australian social enterprises and investors. The program, funded by the Paul Ramsay Foundation, focuses on the development of the social enterprise and impact investment sectors in Western Australia.
I2I aims to reduce the failure rate of social enterprises and support the growth and impact of successful ventures
Impact 2 Innovate will provide a comprehensive range of capacity building support and partnerships aimed at growing impact ventures and social enterprise in WA, including working to address the most significant gap in the market – that of catalytic funding to address the “missing middle” of impact investment.
