Patient capital is an investment that, in the form of equity, debt or grant, finances projects with a high social impact. It generates a smaller revenue compared to traditional forms of investment, because it dismisses profit maximization in favor of a measurable and durable social impact. By operating mainly in adverse contexts, patient capital has long-term horizons and tolerates risk.
In addition to patient capital, we provide our partners with strategic assistance, organizational and managerial support, guidance with project management and collaboration in fund-raising.

All projects are chosen according to transparent criteria. We pay extreme attention to both social impact and financial sustainability, when we make our choices.
Our approach generates a sustainable impact over time. The initial capital, together with possible profits or dividends, cannot in any way be returned or distributed to the investors. Instead, it is completely reinvested to improve or scale the project itself, or employed in other projects in line with the principles guiding the organization.
The success of our projects is directly linked to the ability to measure and evaluate the social benefit generated for the people we serve.
For this reason, from the very beginning of a project we commit to evaluating its efficiency and efficacy in terms of quality and quantity.
The use of specific indicators for impact measurement is necessary to define the effectiveness of the intervention, to learn from an ever-changing situation, to empower our work and replicate it.
