Our approach reflects our philosophy of impact measurement for early stage companies: end-to-end evaluation, assuring core business alignment, and flexibility during investment. This materializes into a process that is simple and value-add for our portfolio companies, our firm, our LPs, and community.

Our five
step process:
Our investment thesis is guided by our framework, which illustrates the expected change and its context, visualizing short-term activities leading to long-term impact.

Integrated into our diligence process, we screen a company’s’ current or projected impacts across three key dimensions of diversity, environment, and health, using a standard rubric.

Our impact expectations are formalized in an investment side letter. An annual questionnaire allows companies to track their impacts across IRIS+ aligned indicator metrics.
We team with founders to define 3-5 measurable impacts on key stakeholders. These metrics align with externally defined impact frameworks such as IRIS+.
Portfolio companies report their impacts annually. Recognizing the early stages of our portfolio, we work with our companies to adjust and refresh metrics as their businesses evolve.
