Northstar Ventures is a venture capital and social investment firm that supports high impact charities and social enterprises in the North East of England.
Northstar Ventures has a dedicated social investment team who, between them, have decades of experience supporting charities and social enterprises.
While we know that social investment isn’t right for every organisation, we do believe that for some charities and social enterprises it can be the key to achieving long-term sustainability. Our investment team, therefore, works closely with an organisation’s Chief Executive and Trustees to ensure that the investment product we offer is the right fit.
We like to say that when we first meet an organisation, we arrive with ‘a blank piece of paper’ – we always try to shape the investment we make to the organisation, not the other way around. As a result, our investments are varied – we have experience with Social Impact Bonds, providing working capital, revolving credit facilities and property acquisition.
