IIX is a Singapore-based organization with a mission to provide Impact Enterprises (IEs) in Asia greater access to capital, allowing them to more rapidly expand the impact of their activities. IIX offers three investment platforms — Impact Accelerator, Impact Partners and Impact Exchange. Impact Accelerator provides seed-stage IEs with mentorship and private capital through a structured and customized process over a period of about 8 months. Impact Partners is Asia’s largest private placement platform for impact enterprises, connecting carefully screened IEs seeking investment capital with impact investors. IIX also recently announced the launch of Impact Exchange, operated by the Stock Exchange of Mauritius in collaboration with IIX. Impact Exchange is the world’s first “social stock exchange”, dedicated to listing and trading securities issued by mature IEs and other socially-driven organizations.

Through its investment platforms, Impact Accelerator, Impact Partners and Impact Exchange, IIX connects IEs with Impact Investors that value the social impact these IEs create. IIX benefits Impact Investors by giving them access to a group of investment-ready IEs with strong corporate governance practices and a commitment to transparent reporting of both financial and social results, and by providing a source of liquidity.
