Better Ventures Approved for Investment by ImpactAssets and Joins the IA50
We are thrilled to announce that Better Ventures Fund II has been approved for investment by ImpactAssets' Giving Fund, a donor advised fund with over $200 million of assets under management. ImpactAssets (IA) is a leading financial services firm dedicated to increasing the flow of capital into investments that deliver financial, social, and environmental returns.
Through the Giving Fund’s Global Impact Ventures platform, clients have unique access to high-quality, vetted private equity and debt funds that are pursuing both financial returns and positive impact. Better Ventures has also been selected to join the IA50, an annual list of the leading impact investment firms across the globe. The bar is high for inclusion on both the Global Impact Ventures platform and the IA50, and we are honored to be among a short list of funds to make the cut.
Fran Seegull, Chief Investment Officer and Managing Director of IA, said: "We are very pleased to include Better Ventures on our Global Impact Ventures platform. Better Ventures invests capital in and offers value-added services to US-based technology startups building innovative solutions to address intractable global challenges. Wes and Rick’s experience and investing track record are impressive, and we are delighted to extend this compelling investment opportunity to our clients."
Starting immediately, IA's Giving Fund clients are able to access Better Ventures Fund II with commitments below our stated minimum due to ImpactAssets’ ability to pool these smaller investments. The offering will be available until our upcoming final close.
