Digital Economy Impact Fund of Funds Board of Advisors and Venture Partners The United Nations estimates that USD 5-7 trillion is needed annually to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. As such, it is critical that investors go beyond alignment to the global goals and instead, raise and direct new capital towards progress against the SDGs. Given the scale of capital required and this sense of urgency, some investors are executing new approaches to incorporate the SDGs throughout the investment cycle. In a Global Impact Investing Network's study, many impact investors are raising and directing new capital to help meet the SDGs by 2030. However, there are a few barriers hindering progress. 1. Mismatch: Many existing impact investment funds are in lack of capacity in investing in digital technology-enabled impact projects. However, both institutional investors and family offices demonstrated an accelerated appetite to invest in such projects. 2. Market Gap: Many venture capital funds are increasing their investment into tech-enabled impact ventures. But such information is not easily available for LP investors who desire to invest in such funds. 3. High Costs and Low Accountability: With traditional impact matrix and M&E methodology, many investors are reluctant to put their capital into impact funds. The new Digital Economy Impact Fund of Funds aims to identify scalable funds which have successfully invested in digital technology-enabled impact ventures in the past, and provide them with additional capital to scale up their impacts. By investing in 20 to 30 impact funds, institutional investors and high net worth individuals will have access to the next generation tech impact funds from all over the world. By introducing digital technology-enabled tracing and tracking solutions, we will also help our portfolio funds to reduce costs and improve the accountability of their investment.
