What are Impact Investments?

Impact investments are investments made into companies, organizations, and funds with the intention to generate positive, measurable social and environmental impact in addition to financial return. When generating profit, impact investments make it possible to create long-term and sustainable impact.

The Menomadin Foundation invests in business initiatives that have the potential to create long-term, sustainable social and environmental impact. Whether it is an investment in a startup company that develops a technology that enables ventilated patients to communicate, or in a foundation that supports groundbreaking technologies developed in academic institutions, impact investments generate an evergreen pool of capital, with the profits funneled back to the foundation and reinvested in other activities or impact investments.

We distinguish two kinds of impact investments:

Impact Investing in Impact-Oriented Startups

The Menomadin Foundation invests in promising entrepreneurs who have established Tech Startups with Purpose in various fields, including clean and alternative energy technologies, water, climate, health, agriculture, and technological education and employment initiatives.

Menomadin Foundation invests in both mature startups and early growth stages (A), operating as a venture capital fund. Our investment strategy is based on the unique added values we offer:

Israel’s Start-Up Nation
Our significant network of entrepreneurs, investors, venture capital funds, researchers and decision makers at the forefront of Israel’s technology and innovation industry, known as the global Start-Up Nation, enables us to identify promising startups, help them evolve and fulfill their mission.

Expertise and Experience in Africa

Investment candidates are analyzed in accordance with the areas of knowledge and expertise of our sister company, the Mitrelli Group, an international group of specialized subsidiaries that carry out large-scale, turnkey projects in sub-Saharan Africa in the fields of agriculture, environmental protection, education, energy, water, construction, health, vocational training and more.

As a result, our portfolio companies benefit from access to the experience, structured processes, and professional knowledge in their areas of activity from within the Mitrelli Group, while at the same time helping us leverage the power of groundbreaking technologies to realize the growth potential of the African continent.

What We Offer:

  • Equity investment.
  • Hands-on guidance and support from an experienced and mission-oriented investment team.
  • Access to an exceptional network of consultants and potential clients.
  • Proven track record of growth-oriented and impactful activity.
  • Flexible approach to deal structuring.
  • Data-driven impact measurement and management practice across stakeholders.

What We Look For:

  • A strong and mission-oriented team.
  • Groundbreaking technology or business model in one of our verticals of interest.
  • Proven revenue and growth forecasts, or customer validation for tech solutions.
  • Potential for positive impact on communities in the socioeconomic or global periphery.

We are proud of the companies in our portfolio:

Catalyzing the Growth of the Impact Economy

Impact Economy makes it possible to address complex social and environmental challenges, while generating returns for all stakeholders and not just for shareholders.

Whether it is Social Impact Bonds for the prevention of loneliness among senior citizens or an impact investment committee that finances educational, employment and urban renewal projects, impact economy solutions are placed through financial tools, in line with a business plan, with measurable goals, and in accordance with a dedicated impact management methodology. The Menomadin Foundation supports and creates platforms that promote Impact Economy:

Financial Innovation for SDGs
We design innovative financial instruments with the potential to direct private finance towards critical sustainability solutions, based on the blended finance approach. Proven solutions will later be replicated to other places in the world.

An Ecosystem for a Beneficial Economy
As part of a community of like-minded leaders in the impact investment arena, we engage new members to achieve common goals in Israel and around the world, thereby contributing to strengthening and expanding the knowledge base, experience, resources and capabilities directed to create positive change and a better future for people and the world.

Our ability to identify, create and encourage financial opportunities for impact, through an ongoing process of impact measurement and management, leads to a diverse and meaningful portfolio of social and environmental initiatives with the potential for significant economic gain.
