More about Impact Invest Scandinavia

Impact Invest Scandinavia supports investments in companies that deliver measurable social as well as financial returns. Their investors are interested in scalable solutions across a variety of sectors including social integration, sustainable consumption, housing, and more. They prioritise impact in terms of social value creation.



Founded in 2012, Impact Invest Scandinavia is the first impact investor membership network in Scandinavia.


How much do they invest?

They offer a community of practice to facilitate and support impact investing. Members get a peer-to-peer learning environment in the area of social and ecological impact in a Scandinavian context. For Investors, Impact Invest offers a pipeline of pre-vetted entrepreneurs and businesses that have potential for social and economic returns in all sectors.


How do they work?

Your investment opportunity will be screened by their experienced entrepreneurs and investors, and if it fits their criteria, you will be invited to submit your business plan and financial projections to their deal management system.

  • Once you have submitted your form on their online platform, it is reviewed and evaluated against their deal criteria (above). If there is a clear match, you will be invited into their process.
  • They actively match investment opportunities to the members who are most interested in the kind of investment your venture represents. If your type of company is of interest to several members, you get invited to present live at one of their quarterly local or regional members meetings.
  • If you are expanding internationally, they can introduce you to European partners.
