Connecting impact investors and young social entrepreneurs to drive the creation of sustainable social and environmental value.
YSI bridges the gap between impact investors and young social entrepreneurs.
- We offer triple bottom line investment opportunities that earn financial, social, and environmental returns.
- We provide young social entrepreneurs with debt financing and resources that facilitate successful venture growth.
In order to fulfill our vision, we:
- Distribute $1,000-$10,000 microloans to young social entrepreneurs
- Connect young social entrepreneurs to services that enable the development of their social enterprises (i.e. mentorship, workshops, and events)
- Identify and offer blended-value investment opportunities to impact investors
- Measure the financial, social, and environmental return on investment for every dollar invested
