Ananda Impact Ventures makes its first investment in a company at an early stage (Seed / Pre Series A / Series A). We look for passionate entrepreneurs who want to build outstanding impact driven companies.
The financing of such a venture is a shared journey involving several stages. It is a journey in which we continue to support the fund’s portfolio companies. The typical involvement starts with an initial investment in the range of € 500K – € 2M and can grow up to a total investment of € 7M over several rounds and stages of maturity. On this path, Ananda Impact Ventures is usually joined by our network of international growth investors that can syndicate substantial investment rounds of up to € 20M.
Successful ”impact approaches” exist in many fields. Our first and foremost goal for an impact enterprise is to address a social or ecological problem in a sustainable and highly effective way. Our main impact themes are education, inclusion, ageing population, long-term unemployment, health and sustainable consumption. As long as the societal challenge is relevant and the solution direct and scalable, we are open to other high-impact areas, too.
We are the first pan-European impact venture fund and a pioneer in our field. Our strategy is to support enterprises that operate and create impact primarily on European ground. With our home base in Munich and an office in London, we are at the heart of the European impact investing market and also feel the pulse of the venture capital scenes.
