On April 26, 2023 the Transformative 25 (T25) Project and Integrated Capital Investing released its third list of integrated capital funds, banks and initiatives transforming finance since 2021.
The T25 identifies and recognizes funds, banks and initiatives which demonstrate the power and possibility of integrated capital toward a finance system that works for people and the planet.
T25 funds employ creative financial tools, generate social, relational, and ecological returns, and engage with ownership and governance for equity.
The T25 Selection Committee includes 19 members from multiple sectors who reviewed a diverse group of funds that drive innovative solutions to wealth inequality, the climate crisis, unbanked entrepreneurs and families, and racial and gender discrimination. The funds provide holistic solutions and business assistance to returning citizens, Native communities, the underhoused and underemployed.
The T25 funds illustrate that collaboration, rather than competition, is the path to solving problems. Ishita Shah, one of the committee members noted, “The integrated capital community is one that spreads its wings by teaching others rather than employing a competitive culture. That's the beauty of keeping impact center stage - everyone's incentive is to spread ideas and approaches to impact, rather than compete on the best fund or greatest financial success.”
On April 26 at 11 a.m. the list will be shared in a public webinar, open to registrants at the following eventbrite link. The Transformative 25 - 2023 report and list will be available at the Transformative 25 website on April 26.
Here is the recording of the Fund launch.
