Investing for Impact
The reality that true, meaningful investment is more than financial is a driving principle behind the multitude of investments made at Gray Ghost Ventures. "Impact Investing" pairs financial returns with positive social impact, investing catalytic capital in innovations that have an impact on unserved communities. By investing in early-stage businesses that seek scale and replicability while embedding social impact in their business plans, Gray Ghost has improved the quality of life for millions in low-income communities in developing countries. We operate under the belief that financial success comes from the ability to impact the lives of many, which is why we have committed an excess of $100 million USD to investments in a range of businesses that seek to alleviate poverty, provide affordable education, promote human rights and even aim to improve the environment. As a pioneer in the "Impact Investing" sector, Gray Ghost Ventures has helped such a valuable movement continue to gain momentum.
