Accessing Social Investment

Mutual Ventures support organisations on the whole journey to accessing social investment: from identifying the right social investment offer for you to developing a business case and brokering relationships with investors.

They are a socially focussed consultancy with extensive experience supporting organisations to become investment ready and to develop new social impact approaches, resulting in organisations securing funding or winning new contracts.

Supporting to develop a business case includes: undertaking market research, assessing the competitor landscape and market position, identifying routes to market, determining funding requirements (set-up & ongoing costs), testing the financial viability of the proposition, and evidencing social impact.

As an approved provider of Big Potential and Access Foundation funds, Mutual Ventures have strong relationships with a range of social investors. Consequently, they’ve supported social enterprises to raise finance through ethical loans and social investment, ranging from £200k to £800k.
