Impact Alpha: Village Capital to manage financial health fund for MetLife Foundation in family of funds

impactalphaLast year our fund, VilCap Investments, made its 110th and final initial seed investment, and shifted its focus to supporting our existing portfolio. ImpactAlpha covered the announcement of our new family of funds strategy.

Village Capital is looking to build a “family of funds” that address the different needs of different entrepreneurs in different places. “The family of funds model will allow us to explore targeted funds that focus on specific sectors and geographies, rather than forcing investments into a ‘one-size-fits-all’ strategy,” write Village Capital’s Allie Burns and Victoria Fram.

Village Capital says its family of funds strategy will invest along the themes of financial health, the future of work, and sustainability. It will also target founder diversity and companies with realistic growth projections.
