ADAP Fund 2 is actively searching for outstanding social enterprises to invest in and partner with. We want to be mindful of the precious resource of entrepreneurs time, so if you would like to share your company information for review by ADAP please read about our approach & values on this website. If you think your social-enterprise might be a fit for the ADAP portfolio, then please fill in the form and we will follow up with you directly.
We recognize the role of power and privilege in the investment and social sector. We seek to be honest and open about implicit biases and have a due diligence model that proactively works to address imbalances in the social impact ecosystem. We especially want to cultivate empathy and trust as we work through the investment decision making process.
ADAP currently invests $75,000 in each company we partner with. Each company also enters into an 18-month Advisory Services agreement with ADAP Advisory Services, for which the company is charged a combination of cash and equity.
ADAP invests only in inclusive businesses that are having an impact on extreme poverty in emerging markets. We want to partner with entrepreneurs who are harnessing innovation in an inclusive and sustainable way with scalable & replicable ideas to remove the indignity of extreme poverty. For ADAP Fund 2, we are specifically interested in companies that have an innovative product or service with high potential for growth and significant long-term measurable social impact. We are looking for businesses across various sectors, with missions in line with the SDGs. We invest in early-stage businesses and want to work with companies that have clear evidence of market traction (revenue, paying customers, partnerships, etc.) as well as strong alignment with ADAP's core values. We will prioritise businesses that either directly or indirectly address or mitigate the effects of climate change.
“ADAP's investment changed the growth of our company. We appreciated their financial investment, but more significantly, it was their leadership in timely due diligence and continued support as we closed both our seed round and Series A. I'd strongly recommend working with Andy and the team at ADAP.”
“It was great to experience the ADAP rapid due diligence approach – fast, relationship-driven, and focused. It all works because the ADAP team expects and provides total transparency and candor.”
