Financing and accompanying young ventures in the renewable energy sector
“Developing countries have a large number of microenterprises and some large firms, but far fewer small and medium enterprises. This SME gap is called the missing middle”, according to the Center for International Development at Harvard University.
That is why Gaia Impact Fund finances and supports the growth of start-ups and SMEs which have a positive social and environmental impact on their territory. As an active investor, Gaia establishes long-term relations with its partners, accompanied by a technical, financial and strategic support.
In order to monitor our investments, qualitative and quantitative indicators are drawn up with our partners to assess the impact of their action on the daily lives of the beneficiaries. All of these elements are compiled and documented in our annual impact report.
