Closing the financing gap for social innovators
The world today is no longer so easy to divide into a non-profit and a profit-oriented sector. More and more often people find ways to solve social challenges in an entrepreneurial way. Whether this is a café integrating refugees or a startup developing a smartphone app to help people reduce packaging waste. “Social entrepreneurs” can be found almost everywhere today.
Foundations and other non-profits often are not in a position to support social enterprises for regulatory reasons. However, due to the lack of collateral and anticipated below-market financial rate of returns, banks and venture capitalists typically do not fund social enterprises either. Thus, many good ideas and social innovations fail before they gain momentum.
We have legally anchored Gexsi in a way that we can use our revenues to support hybrid social enterprises. We are in a position to offer tailor-made support, including grants or soft loans or even funding for direct costs such as media or communication services. In addition, the growing reach of our online platform, as well as that of our media partners, help outstanding projects to gain visibility.

How we generate money
We earn money through the ads displayed on the hit lists and, to a lesser extent, through affiliate marketing partnerships. Since we are a social business whose shares are wholly owned by the Good Impact Foundation, 100% of our profits remain within a non-profit framework.
