An investment in a private equity fund that provides growth capital to Colorado companies that have potential to generate strong market returns, but also generate social and/or environmental benefits.
CIF’s objectives are for its investments to drive positive community impact by (1) investing in entrepreneurs who address community challenges through their business models, (2) providing capital to founders who might otherwise lack access to institutional capital including those in rural areas, and (3) supporting companies with exemplary business practices in core Colorado industries
As a founding investor in the Colorado Impact Fund, Gates extended our initial $4 million investment into this bridge fund in order to help capitalize the next ventures in the pipeline.
