We must seed a new way to think, before we can master a new way to invest.

The Audaces Foundation was founded in Brussels in 2012 by a group of nextgen leaders, philanthropists and entrepreneurs, as an independent non-profit organization, with the aim to raise awareness on impact investing.
Through the foundation we create networking opportunities, we connect our members, and we employ member’s and partner’s social capital to perform and innovate.
At Audaces Foundation we strongly believe that a solid impact investing ecosystem will be achieved only through collaborative and systemic actions and with a consistent knowledge and professional base.

The Foundation runs the Audaces Academy, a knowledge platform to share experience and expertise, ideas, resources and best practice. It engages with pioneer investors, leaders, social entrepreneurs, as well as passionate philanthropists and family offices with the common ambition to move the impact investing market towards maturity and global scale.
