WE START AND FINISH
WITH IMPACT

Resonance has been working with social enterprises since 2002 and we believe one of the best ways to demonstrate our track record, and the impact of the organizations we have helped, is to practice what we preach and record our own impact in “words and numbers”. Look at what we achieved during our financial year 2019/20.

  • Growing the market: 11 new investors connected to social enterprises.

  • Building relationships: 4 investors returned this year to invest again.

  • Scaling impact: Unlocking £5.6m of new investment for social impact.

RESONANCE

  • Bridge-building: We built bridges between investors and social enterprises by making investments that carried £43.1m of capital to 30 social enterprises from 175 investors in 2019/20.

  • Systemic change: We have designed 1 new fund and have launched 3 new funds, all in pursuit of mobilising capital efficiently for social enterprises to deliver greater social impact
