For the past 26 years, Social Venture Network has connected mission-driven entrepreneurs to the people, resources and ideas they need to create a more just and sustainable economy. SVN members lead companies that focus on a triple bottom line: people, planet and profit. Mission-driven business has moved from a radical notion to a widespread movement that is having a positive impact throughout the world.
But one of the challenges of this movement is that there is not a level playing field for women entrepreneurs and entrepreneurs of color, who often don't have access to the connections and resources to help their social enterprises thrive and grow.
On average, women-led social enterprise startups generate 15% more in revenues than male-led startups, but
are 40% less likely to be funded. Minority-led firms have historically outpaced the growth of non-minority firms, yet minority entrepreneurs are 35% less likely to receive venture capital financing than non-minority
We're asking you to help us triple the triple bottom line by enabling SVN to provide more women entrepreneurs and entrepreneurs of color with access to the resources that will expand their impact. Your donation will provide scholarships and valuable support services that will connect, inspire and promote a new generation of world-changing entrepreneurs.
