EcoEnterprises Fund is a pioneering impact investing fund manager that has built portfolios of innovative nature-based businesses for over two decades. EcoEnterprises offers tailored growth capital and strategic guidance to sustainable biodiverse businesses in order to scale and optimize their financial, environmental and social performance. Since 1998, they have successfully proven their unique approach, managing three successive funds: Fondo EcoEmpresas, S.A., EcoEnterprises Partners II, L.P., and EcoEnterprises Partners III, L.P., that have financed nearly 60 companies in Latin America, Europe, and the U.S. They have built a track record of delivering portfolio results while generating fair and sustainable livelihoods for local communities, and preserving the most important natural asset: Planet Earth.
EcoEnterprise's Fund utilizes tailored mezzanine, quasi-equity, and long-term debt instruments to drive growth in expanding sectors such as regenerative agriculture, agro-forestry, sustainable aquaculture, ecotourism, certified forestry, and emerging nature-based opportunities. Their capital combined with hands-on partnering through direct technical advisory support, one-on-one work with principals, and Board level participation yields strong portfolio outcomes. With a focus on Latin America, a region that holds 40% of the world’s biodiversity, more than 30% of the earth’s available freshwater and almost 50% of the world’s tropical forests, EcoEnterprises Fund invests in compelling, scalable small businesses that actively contribute to:
