Based in Zürich, Alden Impact Capital is part of a Swiss family office, Alden Capital. Alden Impact Capital is a UNPRI signatory with a focus on impact investing and serves as a dedicated unit for direct, active investments.
Investments are based on social entrepreneurial initiatives and are aimed at delivering financial, social and environmental returns by employing well-defined ESG-drivers. A for-profit objective is regarded as a prerequisite for sustainable investments, scaling the impact delivered through growth, development and change. Alden Impact Capital’s competitive edge is reflected by its distinct corporate approach in acting as an advisor to the companies held. Core strengths include financial- and project management, strategy, business development, governance, funding and marketing.
The investment universe constitutes two different areas of investments, broadly defined as healthcare and Sub-Saharan Africa (with a focus on agribusiness activities of food production, processing and cold-chain distribution), respectively. As a seed-investor with a hands-on entrepreneurial approach, Alden Impact Capital invests in startup ventures and other private companies with a high growth potential. Interested co-investors are offered access to a range of proprietary investments and further pipeline opportunities. Alden Impact Capital is also interested in partnering with investors and companies seeking capital and looking for a strong partner in new or existing business ventures.
