Impact Investing

At Fundsup we believe that when companies focus on a purpose that is rooted in creating value for others, improving the world we live in and inspiring the organization at all levels, they increase their ability to drive profits and create sustainable value.

To stimulate investments in early-stage ventures with social and/or environmental impact, Fundsup offers founders the option to associate their Fundsup profile with one or more of the UN’s global goals (SDG’s). Impact investors will have the opportunity to set their SDG discovery preferences to receive tailored SDG-based dealflow. The Fundsup SDG Initiative and profile feature will launch in early 2019.

About SDGs

The Sustainable Development Goals are a set of 17 global goals and have been agreed upon by all governments.

The SDGs were developed through an intensive inclusive process (including more than 1.500 companies through the UN Global Compact) and as a result call for the key role that companies must play in achieving them.

The SDGs succeed the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), expanding the challenges that must be solved to eliminate poverty and embracing a wide range of inter-connected topics across sustainable development.

The goals are universally applicable and create a common language for all actors (governments, international organizations and companies) involved in both developed as well as developing countries. Although the United Nations primarily target governments, the SDGs are designed to rally a wide range of actors to shape priorities for sustainable development efforts around the world in a common framework.
