The Human Capital Initiative

The Human Capital Initiative (HCI) is a groundbreaking initiative developed by the Impact Innovation Foundation in partnership with GatherVerse Ventures.

HCI is a vibrant ecosystem of collaboration and empowerment bringing together subject matter experts, visionaries, and resources from around the world. It is within this collaborative environment that social impact startups and organizations flourish, creating innovative solutions that address pressing global challenges.

Together, we embark on a journey of collective impact, fueled by the power of human capital. HCI empowers social impact startups and organizations by providing them with the essential resources, mentorship, education, and funding they need to seed growth and make a lasting difference.

This fund initiative plays a multifaceted role in driving social change. We provide essential capital to social impact startups and organizations that have successfully graduated from our supportive programs.

Additionally, HCI covers the expenses of Leading Non-Profit Organizations (NPOs) that deliver crucial educational programs and fellowships. These programs help potential applicants meet the prerequisites for funding. Furthermore, we bear the costs associated with the Institute for Impact Funding (IIF) to manage and facilitate the Human Capital Initiative.

This includes conducting comprehensive research around each social impact startup that receives our funding. Our integrated approach allows us to nurture and support social innovators at various stages, amplifying their impact on communities they serve.
