We believe that we can best support the creation of equitable and inclusive economies by using a range of integrated capital tools: loans, credit enhancements, equity investments, royalty finance, direct public offerings, crowdfunding, grants and more. Over the last eight years, the Boston Impact Initiative has learned how to choose the best capital instrument for the age and stage of each organization we invest in to help close the racial wealth divide in our community. Now we’ve turned what we’ve learned into a card game that can support impact investors, foundations, entrepreneurs, activists and other place-based organizations with a commitment to economic justice.
Join us for a fun and engaging virtual session playing with the Integrated Capital Cards, a bilingual (English/Spanish) deck is made up of 121 cards in 8 suits that help match types of capital and transaction structures with startups, small businesses and nonprofits that are contributing to building regenerative and equitable economies. The deck includes Impact Criteria and Impact Covenants so that all transactions fully integrate both financial and impact expectations.
NOTE TO SOCAP ORGANIZERS: This workshop requires that each participant purchase an Integrated Capital Card Deck. It can be hosted virtually.
