Project: Inclusive social investment
The grant will contribute towards the funding of a Pipeline Development Lead. The role will work to build pipeline for lending work, ensuring a strong match between venture needs and Big Issue Invest lending terms; ensuring the pipeline is as diverse as possible in line with a benchmark of 50% of the portfolio being diverse-led organisations and a commitment to fund the most deprived areas of the UK. Key areas of focus will include conducting research, holding events, connecting with ventures, working with community organisations, tracking DEI data and contributing to a learning paper. There will also be support contributed to the impact reporting with the impact team.
