Frequently Asked Questions


Platform

We are excited that you are looking to list on the Impact Partners platform. However, before you can list, you need to see if you meet the following criteria: 


Listing criteria:

IEs listed on the Impact Partners platform must satisfy all the criteria below, including the core business criteria relating to social mission, environmental sustainability, financial sustainability and scalability, as well as the investment readiness criteria, relating to documentation and investor presentation.


Core business criteria:

• Social Mission: You have a clearly defined social and/or environmental mission.

• Environmental Sustainability: Doing environmental good is part of your work or plan. 

• Financial Sustainability: Your business is financially sustainable or has a credible plan to become financially sustainable within a reasonable period of time.

• Scalability: You can demonstrate that your business model is scalable with investment capital.


Investment readiness criteria:

• Business plan: You have a business plan that is clearly thought through and well presented.

• Financial model: You have a clear and robust financial model showing detailed historical information as well as full projections for P&L, cashflow, balance sheet and supporting schedules.

• Social impact framework and projections: You have a robust and clearly articulated impact framework in place, with compelling evidence to show current and forecasted impact.

Note that as part of our commitment to support IEs to scale up their social and/or environmental impact and improve the lives of their beneficiaries, we require all IEs listed on Impact Partners to commit to developing a full social impact framework if they do not already have one in place. You can use IIX Values to help you with this. 

• Investor presentation: You have prepared a professional and well-polished presentation tailored to investors.


If the list above seems overwhelming and you could do with a refresher on how the whole process of capital raising works, you may wish to take a look at IIX Institute. The institute offers long and short courses that will help advance your understanding of best practices and current perspectives on capital raise, impact measurement and the ESG process. You can learn more about our courses at IIX Institute.


If making environmental and social impact is the mission of your company, you are already in the right direction. In terms of measuring how much impact you are creating, you can do that by using IIX Values™, IIX’s proprietary online impact assessment technology that measures the impact you are creating and also your contribution towards the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) by looking at your mission, financial viability, as well as positive social and environmental impact.

 

Learn more about IIX Values™ here or email us at info@iixglobal.com

Your company can look more attractive to a potential investor if you:

 

●     Have prepared proper materials for them to review, including a clear and well-presented business plan deck and financial statements/projections.

●     Have completed our IIX Values™ full report or even better have it verified by the stakeholders who will  demonstrate clearly to the potential investor how your company is making an impact.

●     Have articulated clearly in your company profile how your company’s mission and business model is being executed well and gaining traction.


IIX Institute can help IEs prepare to be investment-ready. Check out IIX Institute’s courses here.


Fees

IIX does not charge IEs a fee to list on Impact Partners.

IIX does charge a fee to the IE for introduction services. Precise terms of this fee is shared with the IE prior to listing on the Impact Partners platform. In no event will such fee be payable for advising on corporate finance or selling or promotional expenses in connection with an offer.

Following successful registration, you can list a fundraising deal at any time on Impact Partners through your personalized dashboard. Prior to listing a deal, you should have prepared and decided on the following:


•        Amount to be raised

•        Type of funding (debt, equity or hybrid)

•        Minimum ticket size for investors

•        Duration of the campaign

•        Pitch deck

•        Financial projections

 

In addition, you should have filled in your company’s basic financial details in your dashboard, as well as uploaded the most recent year’s financial report.

If an IE does not have an impact assessment framework in place, IIX can help to develop a full Impact Assessment using IIX Values™.

 

The IEs that have completed our IIX Values™ Impact Report will be displayed first in the search results when investors browse for investment opportunities.


As part of our commitment to support IEs to scale up their social and/or environmental impact and improve the lives of their stakeholders, we require all IEs listed on Impact Partners to commit to developing a full social impact framework if they do not already have one in place.

Funding

Impact Partners facilitates the process of fundraising by IEs from various impact investors. IEs listed on Impact Partners will gain immediate exposure to a global audience of impact investors looking for meaningful investment opportunities.

 

You can learn how to raise capital for your IE through IIX Institute. It is crucial to understand the unique impact investing opportunity your IE presents to investors and the specific process of investors in funding high-impact enterprises that value the growth of their social or environmental returns alongside growth in profit.

Investors can communicate with IEs on the Impact Partners platform using our direct messaging service.

If your IE has been listed on the platform for some time and you have not received any inquiries, you may wish to go back to the drawing board and see if the material you have showcased on the site actually represents your company in the best way possible. If you have questions on how to raise capital or develop a business plan, you may wish to check out our IIX Institute courses. If you would like to have a customized consultation, please get in touch with us at info@impactpartners.com.

For your funding round to come together, you will need to have firm commitment from the investors through signed term sheets. Ideally, an investor should give you a term sheet but you can control a round and create a desired term sheet as well. The key here is to see what is the minimum amount you need to grow your company. This is because if your funding goals are not met, the investors who have already come in will back out. So, think strategically on how you want to shape the round.
