Using Philanthropy to Invest in Early-Stage Entrepreneurs and VCs
Eric Ries is all-in on investing for long-term impact. As the founder and CEO of LTSE, and author of The Lean Startup, he believes in the power of patient capital to promote positive change. That's why Eric uses his charitable dollars to invest in early-stage entrepreneurs and venture capital funds through ImpactAssets’ client recommended investments.
“Being able to use philanthropy to invest in the people and causes I believe in means that they are getting the time and resources needed for maximum impact. Any return that results from these investments means more dollars that can be reinvested for good.”
— Eric Ries, Founder & CEO, Long Term Stock Exchange (LTSE)

Investing for Systemic Impact
Compelled by the challenging economic, social, and environmental conditions in Central America that contributed to the migrant crisis in 2020, John Sobrato was inspired to deploy an impact investing strategy that addressed immigration issues at their core. John and his team at Sobrato Philanthropies partnered with ImpactAssets to identify and vet standout organizations based in Latin America that support refugee welfare and provide economic opportunity through microfinance, financial literacy training, and small-business support services.
“It's very important to me to be able to partner with organizations on the ground — where my investments will have systemic impact. ImpactAssets has been a key partner in helping us extend our reach and impact investing capabilities.”
— John Sobrato, Founder and Board Chair Emeritus of the Sobrato Organization
