Investing in impactful businesses
Welcome to SIS Ventures.
We invest in impact-led enterprises to help address society’s greatest challenges and needs.
SIS Ventures is part of the Social Investment Scotland (SIS) group and is authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority. Formed in 2018, we aim to support and grow high-impact organisations through access to mission-aligned investment.
Our goal is to become the go to investor and partner for social entrepreneurs and help more businesses to grow and deliver impact at scale.
The SIS Ventures team is a blend of talented impact investors and traditional investment managers who understand the market opportunity and are compelled to make their investments drive positive impact.
The Impact First Fund raises new capital, utilising EIS tax relief, to support impact-led businesses. The Fund will offer conventional financial returns alongside social and/or environmental returns by investing equity into purpose-driven companies.
