Other Communities We're In:

SVP International

All We See is Potential.

It starts with one person. One person joins many people. Together they will help build communities able to solve our most entrenched problems.

That’s Social Venture Partners. A global network of local partners aligning passion and purpose.

SVP practices venture philanthropy, a business approach for social impact. As such, we invest financial, human, and social capital to solve community problems. We partner across sectors to support sustainable, community-driven solutions. We connect people and organizations striving to change the world together.
