This Handbook is meant to support green and social entrepreneurs in better understanding, and therefore, accessing the opportunities offered by social finance. EVPA, the investing for impact community, is a unique network at the intersection of finance and purpose, driven by knowledge and focused on impact. EVPA has almost 300 members, almost 70% among them are capital providers. EVPA defines investors for impact as those capital providers that power social and environmental impact to build a better world. EVPA builds its strategic insights over almost 20 years of direct connection with investors for impact and has produced many materials on how this impact driven type of investors select and manage their investments. Because of this very specific expertise, MedWaves asked EVPA to gather its knowledge in a short Handbook that could provide guidance and orientation, from a practical perspective, to green and social entrepreneurs interested in becoming investment ready and engage with investors for impact. The Handbook ties together the perspective of the investors, which is a fundamental piece of knowledge that should support green and social entrepreneurs in better defining their fundraising strategy and manage funding expectations, with the perspective of the entrepreneurs themselves thanks to a series of additional tips & tricks sections.
