An exit is not the only way of demonstrating impact on an investee business, and this impact can reach beyond the business…
The Most Impactful Investment award, which recognises the impact of the fund manager on an investee business by focusing on how funding has been deployed and growth or improvement has been enabled during the investment term. Assessed in context of type of investment, targets, timeframes and what has been achieved to date, a panel of judges will base their scoring on entry questions related to Deployment of funds, Value beyond investment, Social impact, and Management of risk.

“The funding from growth investment starts a ripple effect, spreading impact and fuelling growth across the country. From job creation to social value creation, the decisions to focus funding on particular investments makes a tangible difference to the world around us. BWB has years of experience partnering with impactful investors, helping them to design innovative structures, measure impact and navigate all their legal and regulatory needs.
As a B Corporation, we understand that the bottom line is an important but incomplete measure of success so we are particularly proud to sponsor this year’s Most Impactful Investment award, which recognises the biggest game-changer going beyond the bottom line.”
