(Dick Haan, Dutch entrepreneur and Managing Director Triple I)
is to defeat poverty by empowering entrepreneurs.
We envision a world without poverty driven by socially dedicated entrepreneurs who demonstrate sustainable standards on development, growth and productivity.
is that social-dedicated entrepreneurs can make a change and play a vital role in achieving sustainable, large scale, economic development and social impact. However, we recognize that first businesses need to be viable and grow before they can create long-term social impact.
This is why we support locally owned businesses and encourage entrepreneurship in less developed areas of the globe.
Our core values
We demonstrate courage and have an entrepreneurial spirit by taking high financial risks for social impact. We are positive, flexible and open-minded. We believe in the power of entrepreneurs to make a change.
We are caring, warm, and have personal trustful relationships with entrepreneurs. We are flexible and provide unique financial solutions tailored to the context of the local businesses. We appreciate diversity in our team.
We are transparent, open and responsible about our work. We carefully treat the information we receive. We are integer, ethical, fair and manage expectations properly.
We balance the financial, social and environmental impact and returns. We are committed to achieve positive social value but we are realistic about the scale of our work. We acknowledge financial returns to be less than market returns as the price of creating social value.
We are an unique partnership between a Dutch entrepreneur and a global NGO. The result is a fund with an entrepreneurial spirit and a social heart. We partner with Oxfam Novibs’ Business Development Program for deal sourcing. Oxfam Novib is managing a grant-based SME Development program building the capacity of local entrepreneurs. Entrepreneurs receive business and impact training and tailored consultancy services to improve their business and make them investment-ready.
