What We Do
A first-of-its-kind angel investing network to catalyze local capital and back high-potential Philippine enterprises through customised incubation, technical assistance, and investment readiness to prepare to raise capital.
Who We Are
Villgro and xchange have combined their decades
of experience investing in impact entrepreneurs to address key gaps in the Philippine ecosystem. The Impact Pioneers Network is jointly designed, developed, and managed by Villgro and xchange.
Our members are high net worth individuals (HNWIs), family offices, corporations, and foundations that believe in the power of entrepreneurship to solve pressing social and environmental challenges.
We will scout and source deals from across the Philippines in priority sectors from our active network of pipeline partners across the country.
All enterprises will go through a detailed due diligence process, including external validation and legal and compliance diligence, before any investment is made by the network.
We will take members through a 10-week learn-by-doing impact investing journey with peer investors. We will hold regular learning sessions for Impact Pioneers on impact investing and related topics to keep abreast of latest developments in the sector.
Members get access to our network of local investors and global ecosystem players and curated events to connect with them. We will have our own platform to showcase enterprises, bring together investors, technical assistance service providers, and relevant learning resources.
We will handle all services and related paperwork required in deal closure, from sourcing to investment and reporting. We will monitor and ensure that enterprises share key business updates on a periodic basis, as well as collect impact metrics for annual impact reports.
The network aims to contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals and support impact entrepreneurs in key sectors that remain underserved in the Philippines, where innovation and entrepreneurship can play a pivotal role in addressing challenges that continue to prevail.
