 Civic Impact Fund


 

Civic entrepreneurs, even ones with strong business models, struggle to access capital for the stability and growth of their work. This makes it harder for them to strengthen their operations and grow their work. The Civic Impact Fund was created in 2016 in partnership with Invest Atlanta and the Sara Blakely Foundation to provide flexible capital for civic entrepreneurs with strong models and plans for growth. Currently, the Civic Impact Fund is open only to graduates of the Civic Innovation Residency.
