Pangaea: Impact Investments
We are a small company with big ambitions. We believe that to tackle many of the significant challenges facing society today and achieve real social transformation, you need to harness the power of markets, entrepreneurship and private capital.
We aim to drive social impact through investments in sustainable, impact-first businesses. We seek to invest in social enterprises that:
Are mission-led, driven by passionate people committed to delivering real social or environmental impact;
Have a strong, scalable and sustainable business model alongside clear metrics for realizing their social impact;
Are seeking partners that can provide the capital, experience and expertise to help take their business to the next level.
We are a boutique investment company that focuses solely on direct impact investments in social enterprises. More than just providing access to capital, Pangaea provides its partner enterprises with access to significant experience and expertise in strategic planning, business model design and operational execution. We have specific experience in the education (online, vocational and tertiary) and legal services sectors. We have founded, led and exited successful businesses in the online learning and tertiary education sectors. We have experience in start-ups, consolidation plays and turn-arounds.
The impact investing universe is pretty broad. Given our background, we focus on social enterprises that seek to find innovative solutions to:
Increasing language, literacy and numeracy
Increasing accessibility to education and training
Accelerating employment, particularly in disadvantaged groups
Reducing poor health and disease
