WE ARE THE SOCIAL INVESTMENT ARM OF THE BIG ISSUE. WE HELP PREVENT POVERTY AND INEQUALITY BY BACKING SUSTAINABLE SOCIAL ENTERPRISES, CHARITIES AND VENTURES.

WHAT WE DO

We help scale-up social enterprises and charities by providing finance, not grants, from unsecured loans to equity investment – whatever is best for you.

BII is born out of a social enterprise and is led by social entrepreneurs and experienced social financiers who have first-hand experience of setting-up and running profitable social enterprises in both good and difficult times.

ARE YOU A SOCIAL ENTERPRISE?

We’re looking for partners who require finance and have:

  • High social impact
  • A track record
  • And a plan to increase trading income

WORKING WITH US

The organisations we support tell us they like partnering with a team that shares their values – and that understand how finance can be the fuel for social change.

To see if we are the right partner for you call us on 020 7526 3448 or email enquiries@bigissueinvest.com

Big Issue Invest was set up to help tackle and prevent some of our biggest social problems. What we do is not charity. We invest in businesses led by socially minded entrepreneurs from all walks of life. We understand first hand how good, smart businesses can do great things.
