ABOUT QUANTIFIED VENTURES

Quantified Ventures is an impact investing and social enterprise advisory firm. We identify, due diligence, and structure transactions to deploy impact capital to scale proven social and environmental solutions. We operate in two primary verticals: Environment and Health.

The large and growing market for impact investment capital is challenging the former notion of a trade-off between financial and social returns. By deploying impact capital to social enterprises that are demonstrably creating positive impact, we can support their sustainability and accelerate society’s ability to address the world’s most pressing challenges. At Quantified Ventures, we simplify access to impact capital to scale solutions and interventions that drive true social change through innovative financing mechanisms.

WHAT WE DO

Quantified Ventures serves innovative organizations in the social, public, and private sectors as advisors in identifying, designing, and structuring impact investment transactions, primarily through outcomes-based financing. We advise nonprofit organizations and private social enterprises with a demonstrated track record and evidence of program outcomes in preparing for and securing impact capital. We help governments, health plans, health systems, and public agencies align payment with the achievement of outcomes. Lastly, we work with impact investors to optimize their capital deployment strategies to maximize social and financial returns.

Leveraging our own tri-sector experience, we believe that moving the needle on the biggest social challenges will be driven by collaborative leadership from public, private and social sectors. Most critically, we bring a maniacal focus on transaction efficiencies and scalable investment products because we believe that will be core to enabling a self-sustainable impact investing market.
