Investing For Impact

MaSa Partners is a social impact venture that invests patient capital in early-stage, mission-driven companies solving today’s problems. We believe social change and sustainable development can be achieved without sacrificing financial returns.

The MaSa Approach

By providing early financial and human capital, MaSa works collaboratively with company founders, investors and other stakeholders to build the foundations for success.

MaSa's 4P Investment Approach

We always lead with mission and impact, 

and look at companies through our 4P lens:

Problem

Is the company seeking to address a real problem that needs to be solved?

Mission must be at the company’s core, no matter the area, and we have to believe in the potential to create a lasting impact.

People

Is the team talented, diverse, and personally connected to the mission?

We have to believe in the people as well as their dedication to the mission and the company’s overall success.

 

Product

What is the company’s product / solution to the problem?

We need to understand the company’s product and commercialization strategy. No market & no customers means no impact!

Profit

Do we think the company will be profitable and sustainable?

We need to buy into the company’s business model & financial projections, and believe it will be able to deliver lasting impact.

Our Investments

MaSa’s growing portfolio includes disruptive companies creating innovative solutions in renewable energy, food & agriculture, healthcare, life sciences and equity & equality.
