Mercy Corps sees complex global challenges as an invitation: to pioneer paths out of poverty, to forge new partnerships, to create solutions that break through entrenched challenges. But the traditional grant-based model of funding international development is limiting. It rarely promotes the flexibility and experimentation required to test new models — models that could deliver social benefit to millions of people in the developing world. Mercy Corps’ Social Venture Fund provides early-stage financing and post-investment support to create and grow scalable, self-sustaining businesses that improve people’s lives in an enduring way. We do this by pairing our deep, on-the-ground insight into local customs and markets with a unique blend of capital and targeted business expertise. Capitalized by philanthropic contributions, we structure the Mercy Corps Social Venture Fund so that our highest-potential emerging ventures receive the early-stage support needed to learn, adapt and grow. Those that demonstrate financial sustainability, social impact and scale in the proof-of-concept and acceleration phases are connected with investors for follow-on funding to reach commercial viability.

Our Mission is to cost-effectively empower young people, women and children. We give young people the platform to pursue a better future together. We strive to not only give youths a voice but also provide them with the tools to succeed in a world where the odds are stacked against them. We envision a society where children, youths and women are viewed as assets and resources, and thus encouraged to develop their full potentials.
