Village Capital uses the power of peer review and support to shape enterprises making an impact, and to change the way investment in them is made. Through tested educational programs worldwide, and through a unique peer-selected model, Village Capital provides innovative risk capital to the world’s highest-potential ventures. Village Capital also seeks to provide a platform to more easily engage partner investors in providing risk capital to entrepreneurs, expanding the scope of the impact investing industry. In 2012, Village Capital launched a donor-advised fund with ImpactAssets, enabling partners to easily deploy recoverable grants and program related investments (PRIs) to peer-selected investments in Village Capital programs. At the end of each Village Capital program, entrepreneurs assess one another, and the top-ranked receive investment capital from Village Capital’s fund as well as local partner co-investors.
