What is the ENTREPRENEURIAL FUND?

The Solidarity Fund for Social Endeavor (ENTREPRENEURIAL FUND) of the Wiese Foundation is an Impact Investment platform that seeks to identify and boost duly incorporated companies in Peru that:

(1) have been created with the mission of addressing a social problem that is relevant for the most vulnerable communities, through their commercial operations,

(2) are in the early stages of their operation; that is, prior to their commercial scaling,

(3) can prove some evidence of the success of their business model, in terms of the potential for economic growth, self-sustainability and social impact.

The social endeavors selected to be part of the Portfolio of the ENTREPRENEURIAL FUND will receive specialized advice and customized financing (soft loans, revolving donations and grants), for a maximum period of 30 months, against formal commitments of commercial scalability, self-sustainability and social impact.
