About this Program

Each year SVC helps catalyze ~ $10,000,000.

Our Investment Focus

The mission of SVC is to pull together money, expertise and connections for the people creating a better economy: for our society and the environment, as a powerful, diverse and inclusive community. We do this to catalyze the NEXT economy; a global economy that is regenerative, just, and prosperous for everyone. 


SVC accepts applications across the U.S. on a rolling basis. You only need to apply once; and you may update your application at any time. Your application will automatically be considered for as many pitch opportunities as possible. The fee to apply is $25. 


Companies are only considered for investment IF they address Environmental, Social and Governance challenges. 


Deal Stage: We consider private companies in many different deal stages including Pre-seed, Seed, Series A and growth. We do not consider individuals or technologies, only fully-formed companies. Companies that do not expect to generate revenues of at least $5M within the next 5 years wwill receive less consideration.


Financing Needs: Companies with capital needs between $200,000 and $3M tend to gain the greatest interest from our investors.


Scalability: SVC members are interested in maximizing Environmental, Social and Governance Impact, and financial return. For this reason, companies that have a potential for national or international growth tend to find more interest within our network. For example, we will consider a submission from a company that sells organic coffee to retailers across the country, but not likely from a company that is launching a single, local, organic coffee shop.


Other Criteria: We do not accept applications from purely non-profit organizations. We will accept for-profit subsidiaries or partners of nonprofits.


Companies that are most likely to find interest within our membership will have a combination of the following characteristics:



  • Experience and relevant management team

  • Clear understanding of their market(s) and competitive advantage

  • Legally defensible technology

  • Product or business model validation with revenue / work orders

  • Clear commitment to a environmental, social and governance


Disclaimer: As a nonprofit, and not an angel fund or VC firm, Social Venture Circle (SVC) charges a nominal, nonrefundable fee to entrepreneurs in the amount of $25.00 to create an account on Gust. All investors in the SVC network have access to Gust, and individually view your profiles there. In addition, should you raise $100,000 or more from SVC investors, we ask that you pay it forward by making a tax-deductible contribution to our organization to help cover operations and administration.
