User Profile

Invested Development's mission is to reduce poverty in emerging markets through risk capital investments in innovative alternative energy and mobile technology startups. ID manages two impact investment funds: The BSP Fund, a super angel equity fund, and the Impact Factoring Fund, a working capital facility that applies the principles of "factoring" to impact. To date, the BSP Fund has made ten investments with operations in eight countries.

IRIS Use

ID uses IRIS metrics in quarterly and annual reporting to the BSP Fund's Limited Partner. It is a tool used for measuring and monitoring portfolio performance, both with financial and social metrics. In designing the Impact Factoring Fund, ID is using IRIS to assess potential investments and communicate impact generation to outside investors.
