WHO ARE WE


Social Finance NL solves social challenges sustainably and effectively. We do this by facilitating innovative collaborations between governments, social enterprises and investors, based on result agreements, knowledge sharing and data-driven analyses.

ABOUT SOCIAL FINANCE


Social Finance NL is a social enterprise that believes in creating equal opportunities. We need a new, more effective way of solving social issues.

 Social Finance NL facilitates innovative collaborations and knowledge sharing between government, social enterprises and investors, using a results-oriented methodology and data-driven analyses. This creates a sustainable, effective approach to social issues.

Social Finance NL works on various projects for different government bodies, in order to tackle a range of social issues and achieve better results for different target groups. We advise on and support the formulation of objectives, we develop result measurement methods, and we form a link between government, social enterprises and impact investors.

We are currently working with various clients on the development of Social Impact Bonds and an outcomes fund. Read more about our projects here.

Social Finance NL was established with the support of its founding partners.
