Those seeking capital must put forward at least one impact investment in Cuyahoga, Lake, Summit or Geauga counties in Ohio or close proximity to these counties. A fund with an office in these counties would also qualify.
Because community-wide measurement is important, those seeking capital should be willing to report back on deals made as a result of information and contacts gleaned through Impact Cleveland. They should be willing to have consortium partners contact them occasionally for information on downstream impacts, such as job creation, new patents, carbon sequestration, etc. Continuous participation in the feedback loop is a contingency of Impact Cleveland membership. Investments must aim to produce at least one societal benefit aligned with the UN sustainable development goals. For more information, visit How it works and our Frequently asked questions.
