Thanks to our strategic convergence with Alliance 2030 for progress our investment vehicle has contact with 24 accelerators that create pipeline and follow up on the projects.

Progress Fund

Innovative financial instrument based on paybacks by results

Our fund started from the strategic convergence in between a Colombian NGO called Alliance 2030 for Progress and two prestigious Colombian fund managers with experience structuring and managing impact investment funds.

These regional nodes where trained to structure projects with competitive advantages, latent demand and our investment thesis.

We have more than 10 years of experience measuring the impact of our investments, using our own methodology, based on globally recognized impact measurement standards and processes.

Our process has several layers of information, the first layer has a baseline survey regarding environmental, social, governance, ethics and quality compliance, also considering cross-cutting components such as eco-efficiency, circular economy, competitiveness and consistency with local development plans. The second layer of information is based on the 5 impact dimensions of the Impact Management Project. These impact dimensions use the indicators that we select from the IRIS+ taxonomy to understand What is impacted, Who is impacted, How much is impacted, Contribution and Risk. Each of the indicators has a periodic check which shows us the performance and correlation with the investment process.
