ID's mission is to reduce poverty in underserved markets through risk capital investments in innovative alternative energy, agricultural technology, and mobile technology startups.
Invested Development is an impact investment management firm. Founded in 2009, ID is a leading innovator in early-stage financing for tech start-ups. ID funds start-ups that are committed to serving the world’s underserved markets. In 2011, ID launched the BSP Fund, a seed-stage equity fund for mobile/ICT, alternative energy, and agricultural technology start-ups. To date, the BSP Fund has made thirteen investments across eight countries.
After seeing the working capital strain that start-ups face in emerging markets, ID responded with the Impact Factoring Fund (IFF) in 2012. The IFF provides working capital to growth-stage technology companies in emerging markets.
ID focuses on seed-stage, for-profit enterprises with innovative solutions for underserved markets. If you’re a social entrepreneur seeking funding for a startup, please visit the http://www.investeddevelopment.com/entrepreneurs/
