Societal Impact Financing Initiative (SciFi)
A particular focus lies on harnessing the catalytic potential of private wealth for the common good. Starting from the DACH region, SciFi aims to advance giving and impact investing in Europe and beyond. Specifically, SciFi prioritizes two major societal transformations:
Education: Enabling potential of all
Sustainability: Achieving CO2 reduction targets fairly.
Tailored financing tools and cross-sector coalitions are needed to pilot and scale innovative approaches. SciFi brings together a variety of stakeholders for this purpose: impact entrepreneurs, wealth owners, foundations, and, where needed, business and politics. In particular, it aims at promoting the strategic and pooled use of resources: what is the specific role of private wealth to advance transformations? What do optimal financing structures look like? How can endowments be managed in an impact-oriented way?
