How It Works

The IESE Impact Fund is a student-managed fund investing in impact ventures: for-profit organizations where positive social and/or environmental impact is an intentional and integral part of the business model.

We count on the support of IESE faculty and other strategic partners to invest in direct equity of early stage businesses. The fund aims to invest in ventures where it can make a meaningful contribution to the organizational development and overall positive impact generated. We leverage the IESE MBA student network and broader community to provide post-investment support and advisory services our portfolio companies.

The fund’s capital is raised through donations and the proceedings of its operations are not returned to donors. Instead, all returns on investment are kept within the fund for future investments and to support the IESE Impact Fund operational activities.
