Since 2003, GGV has been a leading voice in the Impact Investment sector, investing more than $125 million into innovative, entrepreneurial ideas that have changed millions of lives. Our philosophy is that a sustainable market-based investment approach is key to addressing some of the world’s most challenging social issues.

As products and services must have a low price point to be affordable to the poor, businesses that cater to low-income populations are challenged by slim margins. Therefore, for these businesses to reach millions of people is not only a social imperative, but a financial one as well: they must achieve scale to be profitable. Providing such businesses with appropriate financial and human capital will help them reach scale and create innovative solutions to enhance and empower the lives of the economically disadvantaged.
