OUR STRATEGY

 

ALIVE invests at the intersection of profit and impact, targeting profitable companies that have impact embedded in their business models.

Financial
returns

ALIVE seeks to provide attractive risk-adjusted returns to its investors, through early growth capital investments in companies which are both impact-driven and profitable. 

Social
impact

ALIVE places impact at centerstage, measuring impact using a data-driven approach to not only count lives but, more importantly, to understand how lives are being impacted. 

Gender
lens

ALIVE recognizes that women are disproportionately affected by poverty due to ingrained discrimination in the region, and therefore applies a gender lens across its investment processes.

Ecosystem building

ALIVE seeks to build a vibrant community of like-minded investors that truly care about impact and learning. 

Knowledge Sharing

ALIVE seeks to grow the impact investing space in Latin America by collaborating and sharing knowledge broadly.
