Global coalition explores ideas for new impact investment fund to back creative enterprises | The Social Enterprise Magazine

The members of a continent-crossing team led by Nesta, Upstart Co-Lab and Fundación Compromiso aim to catalyse the development of a new global impact investment fund dedicated to supporting creative enterprises. 

This month, the three partners, whose organisations are based in the UK, the USA and Argentina, launched a new project called Creativity, Culture and Capital to coincide with the start of the United Nations International Year of Creative Economy for Sustainable Development. 

The project is supported by the British Council’s Developing Inclusive and Creative Ecomomies (DICE) programme, the Global Steering Group for Impact Investment (GSG) and the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD)

The project aims to boost the amount of impact investment directed towards creative enterprises around the world, so that these enterprises can play a greater role in the world’s recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic and help to create a fairer, more sustainable economy.
