IGNIA is the first social impact (venture capital) fund in Latin America fully dedicated to investing in high growth enterprises that serve the base of the socioeconomic pyramid (BoP). We provide responses to the enormously underserved needs of low income populations and seek to create social value while generating attractive financial returns for our investors. We want to prove that meeting the needs of the poor can be profitable, and therefore attract more investment into businesses and solutions that help those in poverty.
We prioritize sectors that have a disproportionate impact on the life-chances of the poor such as healthcare, nutrition, housing, education and basic utilities. To date, we have 6 portfolio companies in affordable housing, organic produce/agriculture, primary healthcare and telecommunications–all fully dedicated to improving the lives of people living at the BoP.
We are looking for a fresh, vibrant web site that communications who we are and where we are better able to communicate our vision and ideas with entrepreneurs, investors, policy makers, thought leaders and the general public. Like IGNIA itself, we want our website to have a pioneering influence in the area of social impact investing. We hope you will help be a part of it!
