IIX Foundation empowers marginalized people and protects the planet
by scaling the positive impact of social innovators.

We scale positive impact by fostering growth, maturity and
market readiness of Impact Enterprises and other social innovators.

Core Objectives

IIX Foundation aims to impact 100 million lives across the world by supporting market-based solutions for sustainable development. The Foundation’s activities will be carried out with an emphasis on gender equality, climate action and community resilience.

IIX Foundation will facilitate the growth of Impact Enterprises by helping them scale their operations and impact. It will do this by using the funds raised to:

  • support capacity building services that allow these enterprises to attract, absorb, and deploy the capital necessary to expand their operations and increase their social impact;
  • support the development of innovative financial products that can effectively deploy capital to these enterprises;
  • support the funding of various research projects, including but not limited to identifying and mapping high-impact enterprises in countries throughout the Asia-Pacific region.

Women’s Health Bond

The United States spends more on healthcare than any other country in the world. Even then, there remains critical gaps in access and delivery. Women, especially immigrants and women of color, face huge barriers that prevent them from receiving adequate healthcare.

We are changing this through innovative financial structure like the Women’s Health Bond that aims to improve healthcare for underserved women in the US by supporting high-impact social enterprises and organizations that have innovative and sustainable approaches to healthcare products, services and delivery.

Sustainability Seal

The IIX Sustainability Seal is a certification awarded to organizations that demonstrate mission-orientation, financial viability, positive social and environmental impact, and high potential for sustainable scaling.  The IIX Sustainability Seal moves beyond self-reporting and checking boxes to a qualitative and comprehensive assessment through third-party, on-site verification, that ensures financial viability rather than only ESG compliance.
