Social Venture Capital
Our Social Venture Capital (SVC) investments focus on early stage social enterprises aligned within the Foundation’s mission. Our venture philanthropy caters to both domestic and emerging market firms seeking for scalable, high growth - we have a bias for technology-driven social enterprises. SVC objectives are not guaranteed.
Glazier Social Venture Capital Funds (GSVCFs) invests seed capital into emerging and fledgling social enterprises at their earliest stages of founding. We focus on for-profit social enterprises that aim to deliver high returns of social impact as well as financial returns; all SVCs align with Glazier Foundation’s three core Focus Areas.
As venture philanthropists, we employ similar venture capital strategies as seen through Glazier Ventures and use best practices in social ventures in order to achieve scalable results. Both our Foundation and each GSVC portfolio company believes inherently in the power of achieving financial success through delivering social impact to our constituents.
We treat each SVC portfolio company from seed to series financing; we use similar risk-reward models that are personalized to each high-impact social venture. Companies that meet our social standards benefit from long-term relationships that vary from internal hands on management, SVC network, mentors, and cross-portfolio experiences. There is a strong bias for social enterprises seeking venture capital that are technology focused and led by technology driven entrepreneurs.
