We connect social entrepreneurs with investors to maximize social impact.

The Financing Agency for Social Entrepreneurship (FASE) supports selected social enterprises in raising growth capital. We identify investors and financiers across the entire spectrum, ranging from private investors, family offices and foundations to social investors and banks. We specifically focus on combining several types of investors and different financing instruments. This is in order to develop innovative financing approaches that can serve as role models and blueprints. FASE is an independent organisation; we care deeply about the social and environmental impact of our projects and seek to advance the social finance sector.

Our mission is to assist social enterprises with outstanding concepts in finding appropriate financing. Thus, we contribute to the evolution of a financial infrastructure for social innovations. Through our consulting, we enable social enterprises to finance significant growth steps across the often rigid boundaries between donors, investors and the public sector. Our goal is to offer solutions to one of the most challenging obstacles – the expansion of social innovation in Germany – and to create a rich ecosystem for impact investing.
