Audaces Impact Club

Dear Friends,

I am thrilled, honored and proud to be presenting a new exciting investment opportunity in Audaces Impact through our own Series-A round.

Audaces Impact aims to be the first European investment platform that allows both institutional and retail investors to make direct investments in innovative social businesses. Our experienced team and our user friendly platform makes, for the first time in Europe, impact investing accessible not only to large institutional investors but also to retail investors, the crowd.

Audaces Impact is an innovative hybrid model for impact investing. It sources and validates investment opportunities in breakthrough social enterprises and invests through the Audaces Impact Fund, opening up  for syndication to a community of accredited investors on the Audaces Co-investment Platform.

Investors now have the opportunity to directly co-invest in social businesses -with the comfort of knowing that deal sourcing, due diligence, legal work, portoflio management and eventual divestment is all overseen by a focused venture fund team – whilst maintaining the flexibility to pick and choose those investments that interest them.

Careful social impact measurement, close mentoring and a hands-on involvement within portfolio companies – from investment through to exit – ensure a well-informed path to successful impact investing.

We are currently raising a total of EUR15 million (comprised of EUR5mm for the Club and EUR10mm for the Fund) on a pre-money valuation of the Club of EUR15 million. This Series A round is reserved to an inner circle of investors by invitation only.

We hope you join us on our journey to do good and do well.

Best wishes,
Guy

Social Impact

Our first impact fund, Audaces Impact Fund I, aims to positively effect 10 million lives in 10 years through the social enterprise companies in which the Fund will invest.

The Club aims to democratise impact investing by providing a platform on which mission-driven investors can access investment opportunities normally exclusive to institutional investors. We aim to create a community of thousands of mission-driven investors worldwide.
