Return is a female founded, early stage investment company built on the steadfast belief that you can generate high investment returns and do a lot of good at the same time. We believe that most of the world’s brightest minds are gravitating to this philosophy and that outsized financial and social returns will soon become the goal.We believe in freedom to create wealth, but not at the expense of communities needlessly suffering. Impact investing isn’t a case of, “good people making poor decisions,” and more a case of, “smart investors creating meaningful change”.Our model can be explained without fancy language, clever tricks or interactive graphics. We simply find terrific opportunities with creative founders who have an idea or a company in its Seed or Series A stage. We support with our capital, expertise and networks, attract others to co-invest actively or passively, and quickly build talented teams to fill every imaginable gap. We nurture our investments to deliver outsized financial returns, are transparent and accountable, all while catalyzing social and environmental change.
