Open Road Alliance Response to Covid-19 Co-Investing to Support Social Enterprises

Offered by Open Road Alliance

The effect of the COVID-19 pandemic on the impact sector has reached natural disaster proportions in its scope and scale, which means that the global need for our ‘emergency’ capital vastly outstrips our available resources. Given this reality, we have decided to use our limited resources to best serve the sector under the following circumstances.

We will take referrals from existing investors, and expect to share the risk of keeping these portfolio companies afloat through a co-investment strategy. For these loans, we will bridge to future committed funding or delays in accounts receivable, equipment, etc. where the organization’s cash flow is typically strong enough to repay within a 12-month period. By combining forces with other investors, we will also be able to solve for larger short-term
