„Collaborating with FASE was simply fantastic. It was the first time I learned how to properly prepare business and financial plans. Our common pitch events were always fun. There is 100 percent trust between us and I can recommend this path wholeheartedly to any of my social entrepreneur peers. Without FASE, it wouldn’t have been possible for us to access these types of investors and the impact capital we raised.“

“The great thing about impact investing is that with every Euro you invest, you can achieve positive impact more than once. What we appreciated about our collaboration with FASE was that the investors in FASE’s network have already understood this principle. In addition, we and other social enterprises that FASE has worked with can inspire people to overcome this mental and sometimes administrative hurdle. Some of our philanthropic partners already old us that they would like to do an impact investment next time, rather than donating again.”

„The first financing round with support from FASE was a very exciting experience for us, since it has created a great foundation for the following round. Without it, we wouldn’t have been able to learn important aspects such as driving our business plan forward or gathering practical experience from a professionally managed transaction process. I haven’t received a lot of great advice in my life, but the feedback from FASE and the insights I gained in the mindsets of investors were extremely valuable to me.“

“Collaborating with FASE prepared us really well to communicate in the “investor language”. Of course, the same applied to the investors themselves. Through FASE, they knew exactly what it means to make an impact investment. This is why I appreciate this process and translation service so much: without FASE, the “language barrier” would have been much higher.”

“Due to the great collaboration with FASE, we have managed to reach investment readiness in a short period of time and bring a great investor on board. The fresh growth capital has enabled us to build a sustainable organisation and to provide exciting opportunities for people with disabilities in economy and society.”

With the help of FASE, we were successful in finding the right investor for our social enterprise. Based on the investment, we can make our theme book boxes known throughout Germany, so that more schools are able to benefit from our offer.
