Investment capital for social ventures project

Investment capital for social ventures project


July 2006



Social Investment Scotland (SIS) has recently completed phase 1 of the above project and a report detailing the findings has been distributed to a large number of key players operating in the social economy in Scotland. The report can be accessed by logging onto the SIS website at (www.socialinvestmentscotland.com) and clicking on the ‘SIS Finance Logo’ or the ‘Investment Capital for Social Ventures Report’ link on the home page.


As a direct follow up to this review, over the course of the next few months SIS will work with a group of social ventures of varying sizes and operating in different fields, to assist the formulation and costing of development plans for each enterprise, and to propose funding solutions that contain elements of investment capital and loan finance. The purpose of the exercise is to provide role models for the sector, and to demonstrate in practical terms, what is possible in the investment capital area.
