Daring Capital - Invest in social enterprises
Daring Capital bridges the gap between investors and extraordinary, underrepresented entrepreneurs committed to building profitable companies with a positive impact on the world. Many investors are keen to align their financial goals with their more progressive social and environmental values, but struggle to source the right kind of companies in which to allocate their capital.
For entrepreneurs, traditional avenues for social investment often demand an extensive track record and operate through high-interest, short-term loans, while venture capitalists seek a 10x return within 5-7 years. Furthermore, most entrepreneurs are too early-stage for traditional finance like high street banks. Consequently, many turn to ‘friends and family rounds’ to secure their initial funding. But many entrepreneurs working to ease social and environmental problems, especially those serving disadvantaged communities, don’t necessarily have wealthy friends and family that can invest. This means that talented, passionate founders are getting stuck at the starting line. And so, investors are missing out on profitable businesses that solve real-world problems.
Recognising this gap, Daring Capital steps in to connect investors with impactful, profitable opportunities. With over a decade of experience in “business for good,” DC founder, Jem Stein is perfectly positioxned to guide investors who want to leverage their capital for environmental and social change.
