Philips Foundation Impact Investment

To further accelerate the development of potentially important opportunities for access to care, Philips Foundation has established a social impact investment vehicle that will support social enterprises through early-stage and situation-specific investment and support.

Philips Foundation Impact Investments B.V. takes an integrated approach in assessing the potential scalability of enterprises by not only looking at their technology, business model or another partial aspect of their solution but rather at their overall readiness to make a meaningful impact within the healthcare systems in which they operate. The investment fund is centered around helping to scale promising initiatives in the fields of good health and well-being (SDG 3) and partnerships for sustainable development (SDG 17).

By creating this social impact investment vehicle, Philips Foundation is underlining its commitment to find innovative ways to provide access to quality healthcare for around a hundred million underserved people annually by 2030.
