"A rising tide doesn't raise people who don't have a boat. We have to build the boat for them. We have to give them the basic infrastructure to rise with the tide." Rahul Gandhi
SoTech Ventures' triple bottom line approach to business helps us to easily align and integrate with community revitalization efforts that leverage everything from venture philanthropy to traditional impact investing models.
Furthermore, our investment work overlaps with numerous policy and economic development initiatives across the country.
We are also establishing the "gold standard" of what comprehensive community impact ought to look like in Impact Investment transactions. From community co-investment via crowd-funding to public-private partnerships, our work aspires to set a high bar for what authentic social return on investment (SROI) looks like.
Ultimately, our community collaborations are designed to bring assets into the community (with the blessing of community members), build value in those assets and then permanently root those assets in the community.
