Our Impact.

SJF’s impact approach is informed by over two decades of experience and spans the entire lifecycle of an investment, from pre-investment impact diligence to post-investment impact measurement, management and acceleration. Our strategy includes:

  • identifying models that are achieving specific social and environmental outcomes,
  • partnering with companies to scale and improve their impact models,
  • accelerating deeper portfolio impacts through our own contributions, and
  • extending our reach to share lessons learned and affect greater change.
