Welcome to Global Impact Venturing
Global Impact Venturing is a launchpad for the corporate venturing teams interested in embarking on impact investing adventures. Our mission is to encourage and enable more corporations to focus their capital on creating positive outcomes through their venturing strategies. Global Impact Venturing (GIV) is developed in partnership between Global Corporate Venturing and Heliotropy.
With mission-oriented finance and investment an increasing focus point for governments and societies through the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) and other initiatives, impact investing has taken on a global challenge and increasingly pulling together the main corporate venturing units, university-backed startups and spin-outs and other parts of the innovation capital ecosystem.
Global Impact Venturing (GIV) covers the deal activity, people moves and regulatory and other relevant stories on direct minority equity investment and limited partner commitment to venture capital funds with an impact lens. This provides the most comprehensive data and analysis of their activities, as well as the best comment from the most highly-regarded thinkers.
This culminates each year in a gathering of top impact venturing programs at the GCV Symposium in May in London.
