How To Apply

At RevFund, we invest in companies that prioritize impact in ClimateTech and Health & Human Equity, and contribute to the achievement of the relevant United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDGs). Please carefully review the information below to understand what we look for in an applicant company and how you can effectively present your impact.

Driving Positive Change

We invest in companies that demonstrate a clear commitment to creating impact in line with the UNSDGs. To help us assess your impact, we require you to include an Impact Slide in your pitch deck. This slide should showcase how your impact aligns with the relevant UNSDGs. Take a look at the example here to understand the structure and content of the Impact Slide.

Value Proposition and Business Model

In addition to social impact, we also consider the value proposition and business model of your project. A strong value proposition showcases the unique benefits and advantages your project brings to the market. Your pitch deck should include a section that clearly articulates your project’s value proposition and provides insights into your business model.


Return on Investment (ROI)

While financial success is important, we prioritize the social and environmental impact generated by a company. We believe in a balanced approach where impact is valued alongside reasonable financial returns. When presenting your financial projections, please show accurate numbers. We will consider funding companies with a lower ROI if balanced by impact.
