SI2 Fund is proud to be one of the first members of the newly created Integrated Capital Network, bringing together impact-oriented finance providers in the Netherlands. The network focuses on supporting social entrepreneurs with funding and expertise to grow their business and social impact.
The Integrated Capital Network, ICN for short, is set up by Generous Minds, Impact Hub Amsterdam and the City of Amsterdam to strengthen the social entrepreneurship ecosystem and improve access to capital. The network represents a wide range of established impact funders, focusing on companies in different stages of development and offering diverse kinds of financing, from donations to loans or equity. Once a month the ICN meets up in an Integrated Capital Lab, where social entrepreneurs in need of funding and expertise can present their companies. The members assess whether to fund the social enterprise and which mix of financial instruments, know-how and network would be fit to take the company to the next level. By joining forces, proposing hybrid funding and tailored support and working closely together with the social entrepreneurs, risks are lowered and the chance of success and broad societal impact increases.
Parties that joined the ICN initiators from the start are SI2 Fund, DOEN Foundation, One Planet Crowd, Heroes & Friends, ABN AMRO Social Impact Fund, ABN AMRO Sustainable Finance Desk, Triodos Bank, Rabobank Foundation and Rijksdienst Voor Ondernemend Nederland.
