Impact and financial results correlation

Machtelt Groothuis July 13, 2022

Rubio Impact Ventures invests in world-changing entrepreneurs who are building the companies of the future. Rubio is a leading European impact VC with a track record of 7 years across 2 funds with EUR 150m AUM.

We believe we need data to convince more capital to go into the impact investing space; therefore impact management is an integral part of our investment process: we set impact targets, track and manage the impact of our portfolio companies and link it to our own remuneration .

Based on our experience with Fund I and II we can now see a clear positive correlation emerging between impact and financial result. At the same time we see that exceptions arise due to early exits or errors in setting targets. We’re happy to share our experiences including case examples.
