Investors’ Circle Social Venture Network

Headquartered in Durham, the Investors’ Circle Social Venture Network (IC-SVN) was formed in January 2018 when Investor’s Circle (the nation’s first early-stage impact investing network) and Social Venture Network (a group dedicated to demonstrating the ‘triple bottom line’ potential of valuing people, planet, and profit) merged.  By combining their resources and expertise, the organizations aim to more effectively serve a network of capital and resource providers working to support the growth of social and environmental impact-oriented enterprises. IC-SVN has facilitated over $220 million in investments into more than 330 early-stage social ventures and boasts over 500 members, making it the largest and most active early-stage impact investing network in the U.S.
