RoundCircle is a specialist in Social Enterprise and Impact Investing, based in Amsterdam, Netherlands. By partnering with entrepreneurs and investors within the social business sector we aim to create impact by helping entrepreneurs and investors achieve their goals.
A new generation of entrepreneurs and investors are creating new business models, combining business acumen to their social activities, as they move from “grant based funding” to “strategic long term capital”.
As grant funding is slashed across the globe, the viability of the social economy will depend on the abilities of entrepreneurs to attract strategic long term funding, and to do so, an organization needs to be “investor ready”, i.e. be able to demonstrate to investors that their organization is able to sustain its activities (financially), while creating social value for its stakeholders. We specialise in providing support to both investors and entrepreneurs to achieve their impact goals.
I am a former investment banker who discovered a passion for social enterprise while completing my MBA. I left the corporate world to apply my experience in capital and emerging markets to the impact investing and social enterprise sector. I am particularly aware of investor expectations, the challenges of “getting started” and of doing business in emerging markets. I am a solution driven creative thinker with a strategic focus, and a holistic view of the challenges. My goal is to create lasting impact and be a partner in success.
