We’re expanding our seed investment program
Since we launched Unitus Seed Fund in late 2011, we have researched, learned, connected, and completed enough investments to be confident of the potential for delivering opportunity to millions of lower-income people via seed investing in innovative startups that serve them. There is no question as to the need for seed investment funds – we get daily inquiries from passionate social entrepreneurs across India. And in speaking with our existing portfolio companies and others in the industry, we’ve also learned what we can do to help startups succeed – we will assist them in business modeling, planning, and connecting them to one another and to new sources of financing as they grow.
We’re very pleased to announce that Unitus Seed Fund is graduating from its incubation with Unitus Labs into a new, standalone, for-profit impact investment management firm and investment fund. USF plans to make seed investments in 30-40 startups over the next few years, with a focus on India.
