INNOVATING FOR THE IMPACT ECOSYSTEM

FUNDS 2

FUNDS 2

The first Business Angels network exclusively dedicated to supporting impact entrepreneurship in France. Launched in 2021 and operated by PULSE, Impact Business Angels brings together more than 50 investors who support natively impact-driven projects in their seed phase. Impact Business Angels meets a dual need:

  • to get Business Angels involved in the impact sector, at a time when it is difficult to do so
  • solve the financing gap for impact entrepreneurship in the seed phase.
  • Impact Business Angels’ ambition is to bring more financing to impact projects, of better quality and more evenly distributed between all types of impact projects.

KEY FIGURES

  • 30
    Financing approx. 30 seed-stage projects (raising <500 k€) for a total investment of approx. 4.5 million euros, including approx. 3 million euros from IBA Business Angels and approx. 1.5 million euros from Groupe SOS Participations (with the possibility of bringing in other investors at a later stage).
