Launch of Australia's First Place-Based Impact Investment Fund in WA
The WA Impact Fund is Western Australia’s first investment fund to deliver measurable social, environmental and financial returns. This landmark Fund, seeded at $20M by cornerstone investor WA Super and managed by Impact Investment Group, will support both asset based social and environmental impact investment projects, as well as social enterprise that delivers impact across sustainability, social mobility and inclusion, and support communities and jobs in WA.
As WA-based delivery partner for the Fund, Impact Seed worked with fund partners in development of the investment mandate, and going forward Impact Seed's role will incorporate investor / investee education across sectors targeting fund scaling and co-investment opportunities, and building pipeline for portfolio investments including:
We are excited for the launch of the first place-based fund of its kind in Australia, and thrilled for the opportunities it affords the development of a thriving impact investment and social enterprise market that supports positive social, cultural and economic impact for WA communities.
- Regenerative Agriculture supporting regional communities in WA
- WA Social Enterprises (late seed-stage)
- Social Housing / Clean Energy Solutions
Early in the new year we will be holding information sessions on the WA Impact Fund. Funders, investors, advisors and entrepreneurs are encouraged to attend these sessions which will outline the investment mandate and potential opportunities.
