Similar to all SEAF funds, the Fund aims to generate both attractive financial returns and strong social impact by providing equity and active business partnership to companies that have traditionally lacked access to institutional risk capital. The Fund plans to address the following United Nations Sustainable Development Goals: #2 – Zero Hunger, #3 – Good Health and Well-being, #4 – Quality Education, #8 – Decent Work and Economic Growth, and #9 – Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure.
