SK2 Fund’s mission is to accelerate transition to a more equitable and sustainable world. We do this by using creative capital to help socially and environmentally committed small businesses and related initiatives succeed.
Creative capital (also called integrated capital) is the coordinated use of varied forms of funding in service of the overall mission. SK2 creative capital supports our core pay-it-forward small business loan program called Thriive, grassroots impact investments, a 100% mission-aligned endowment portfolio, and nonprofit sector grants.
All SK2 initiatives accelerate transition to a more equitable and sustainable world by modeling the transformative power of small business when it puts people and planet first. For SK2 creating a more equitable world includes improving access to capital for historically disadvantaged and disenfranchised populations, primarily through SME financing. We combine this with a strong emphasis on supporting more environmentally responsible and sustainable small businesses.
SK2 considers investment in individual small businesses from the micro to growth stages as well as vetted regional investment funds comprised of the same.
Since we are newly committed to a 100% endowment approach and learning as we go, we are eager to learn from others doing similar mission-aligned investing, and to share our experience with those thinking about doing it.
