SVP Impact Investing Community of Practice

January 16, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

While SVP’s traditional model leverages grantmaking practices to increase the impact of community nonprofits, other financial mechanisms can direct additional capital to nonprofits and entrepreneurs tackling community problems. This call will focus on a specific impact investment structured by SVP Denver. Although active and novice investors alike are invited to participate, a fundamental understanding of financial investments will make it easier for participants to follow along.

SVP Denver recently syndicated an Impact Investment in one of their nonprofit social enterprise clients, Hands of the Carpenter (Hands). Hands became an SVP client in 2016 and after enjoying strong growth, approached SVP Denver to learn more about an Impact Investment in January of 2017.

SVP Denver was already considering forming an Angel Group to Impact Invest in certain SVP clients and therefore took on Hands as the first test case of that model. On May 31st Hands closed on a loan of a million dollars, of which roughly a third came from impact investors.

In this case study, Mark Newhouse, the lead SVP Partner in this transaction, and Dan Georgopulos, the CEO of Hands, will describe 1. The mission of Hands, and what drove the need for the loan. 2 The payback model. 3. How SVP led the diligence and syndicated the impact portion of the loan. 4. The final structure of the transaction. We will leave plenty of time for Q&A.

This call is primarily intended for educational purposes, and SVPI is in no way endorsing presenting organizations or any offering they may conduct.
