Collab Global seeks to bring tailored financing drawing on experience in capital markets, private equity funds, direct investments and IFIs to fund innovation and collaborative programs for impact investments. Substantial capital investment is required to meet the targets and opportunities for the new impact sectors. Collab Global works on solutions that can facilitate the flexible deployment of capital alongside collaborative teams.
Collaboration and finance innovation
Impact investing and investing in innovation reach their full potential for success when the best resources, know-how and experience can collaborate with stakeholders and with structured financing to complete the full investment cycle or take the investments to a sustainable stage. Private equity, banks and sources of public funding are often mono-linear models with finance as a product, but finance can be itself a sustainable component. Collaboration Capitalism generates innovative financing solutions as part of a complete solution. Just as collaboration is a dynamic process that continues on after investments are made to ensure success, structured finance and investments can be aligned with sustainable goals including for example community bonds, local social stock exchanges and cooperatively funded projects.
Collaboration – a powerful tool to unleash value
Collaboration starts at the first stages of an investment or program and can be adapted as projects or companies progress. Collaboration can involve cross-border and international teams. Collaboration works at all levels of innovation, R&D and projects from universities to large urban projects in emerging markets. Collaboration can be flexible, faster and more effective than core teams. It is the optimal model for a more complex world where markets, opportunities and threats are global. Global awareness and how to work globally to tap into people, ideas and capital is a key success factor. Tailoring Global for Local is important for local ownership, functionality and addressing specific needs and opportunities
