2B-Community is an impact investments platform that offers a double bottom line – financial profit and social impact.
We aim to enable the funding and growth of businesses that embody excellence in business as well as real social impact, and that are ready to commit to an ethical code and allocation of a significant share of the business’ profits for the promotion of a social goal.
We examine investments in a wide variety of business types and business sectors, with the guiding principle being investment in businesses with an innovative model and a measurable social impact deriving directly from their activity.
We look for entrepreneurs with professional expertise and management or entrepreneurial experience in the field in which we strive to operate, a team that is strong and high quality that is highly committed to the business, a clear competitive edge and an authentic need for a product or service.
We are focused upon businesses in which we would be a strategic partner that leverages technological knowledge, business connections, financial robustness and managerial and business experience in order to significantly increase the business’ chances of success.
We believe social impact can be a real competitive advantage, and in the future, all companies will be committed to social causes.
2B-Community is a sister fund to 2B-Angels, a venture fund, investing in high-growth technology companies.
