SVP is bold and bright—and we look a little bit different in each community. We invite you to get engaged in a personal way as you explore this website by selecting your own colors!
Social Venture Partners Miami (SVP Miami) is part of global network of 3,500+ venture philanthropists in over 40 cities, who have collectively contributed more than $63 million to 840+ social ventures since 1997. After a successful launch in March of 2017 SVP Miami is moving forth with velocity.
Our SVP Partners are professionals, executives, entrepreneurs and community leaders who leverage their funds, expertise and connections to make strategic investments in their community. We employ a venture capitalist model – but with social returns as the goal.
Going beyond traditional philanthropy, SVP Miami offers individuals, and corporate and institutional partners an innovative and impactful way to give back and scale social solutions by providing them with:
– A strategic opportunity to meaningfully contribute to carefully vetted social ventures
– A network of professionals with similar values and an interest in collaborative solutions
– An opportunity to learn about Miami’s social issues and those working to solve them
– A high-leverage tool to increase their impact by pooling resources
We’re looking for individuals and organizations to join our growing Partner team or to be Sponsors or Supporters. For more information about SVP Miami and details on how to get involved, please click the SVP Miami Overview & Involvement button below.SVP Miami Overview & Involvement >>
We’re also looking for locally-based innovative social ventures making an impact in South Florida that have a proven model and are looking to take it to the next level, to apply to our Investee Program. In this Program we select high-impact, scalable social ventures and provide them with up to $100,000 and pro-bono expert support over the course of several years. We work with the social ventures to create a growth strategy and help them to implement it, with a focus on strengthening organizational infrastructure and diversifying income streams to achieve maximum social impact. We also provide some project-based assistance that may or may not include funding.
For more insight into the types of organizations we assist and how, feel free to read this Overview of our 2017 Investees.
