April 2011
Nesta, Panahpur and UnLtd

The Big Society Finance Fund has supported the development of 20 pilot capital-raisings by social investment intermediaries.

This exemplar portfolio, set out in detail in this publication, was chosen to illustrate the demand for different types of capital in the social investment market, and the ways in which this demand can be presented to attract investment.

All of the projects demonstrate the benefit that a catalytic, strategic investor can bring in getting new social investment products to market and in leveraging significant amounts of new investment from private and charitable sources.
