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 eleven 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.
We focus on seed-stage, for-profit enterprises with innovative solutions for underserved populations. If you’re a social entrepreneur seeking funding for a startup, please visit the http://www.investeddevelopment.com/entrepreneurs/ to learn about our investment criteria.
