Venture Studio

We invest in and develop impact ventures
together with founders who beat the odds before and will do so again in the future.

Our venture studio invests human capital and helps to build and grow companies from within. This model allows us to focus on a few companies at a time and experiment with financial instruments and models.

The businesses we help to build and grow are very diverse, but share more than what sets them apart.

They have exceptional value-driven founders, clear impact-driven missions and an ambitious profitable business model.

About Impact Shakers

With Impact Shakers we tackle complex societal challenges through inclusive entrepreneurship.

We believe entrepreneurship is the best vehicle for change and people are the best at solving problems they know through experience. To tackle more complex problems through entrepreneurship we need more diverse entrepreneurs and we need to activate all of this underused problem-solving potential. 

We work to bridge the gap between impact and profit and to build and scale stronger ventures. We are part of a global movement working on making impact a logical part of every business model. Making the impact economy, just the economy. 

To help make this shift, we approach this from an impact ecosystem perspective. In our venture studio we help build and scale impact ventures, we host an online community and a knowledge hub, and are raising our first micro fund. In Impact Shakers Labs we work on experimental impact entrepreneurship projects.
