Our team supports business leaders, mission-driven entrepreneurs, investors, fund managers, and agricultural producers throughout the development of purpose-driven business development.

We work with our clients to support the realization of their impact measurement and management goals.

For investors and fund managers, Capacity-Building support strengthens an investee’s operations, strategy, or impact. Such support may be provided either pre-or post-investment and either directly by the investor or by a third party. While we share the scope of our work defined as “Capacity Building Support”, investors use a variety of other terms for this practice, including Technical assistance, Portfolio engagement, Non-financial support, and Value-additive support.

We support our clients and network members by identifying Impact Themes and opportunities, while outlining and implementing impact measurement and management plans.

The Model

Our capacity building methodology is inspired by circular and regenerative processes. Through the RAZ Finance Network, we provide a full range of support to our clients, partners, and members ranging from impact investment strategy and regenerative business development, to impact measurement and management, as well as web development and marketing through Roshem Strategic Communications.

Our information technology division: Roshem Strategic Communications takes on web development projects that are aligned with our values. The information technology support provided by Roshem Strategic Communications is geared towards mission-driven businesses, and leaders with strong commitments to positive social and environmental impact.

The Power of Capacity Building Support

The impact investing industry has grown substantially since the term was widely adopted in 2007. While an increasing number of viable investment opportunities has driven this growth in part, three-quarters of impact investors surveyed continue to identify a limited number of high quality investment opportunities with track records as a major challenge constricting the industry’s growth.

In addition to providing financing,impact investors often bolster the capacity of their investees, thereby growing the number of investment-ready businesses. Capacity-building support, also known as technical assistance (TA), is one tool that many impact investors use to strengthen and enhance the investability—and, hence, performance—of companies. According to the GIIN’s 2015 Annual Impact Investor Survey, 73% of impact investors provide technical assistance to investees.


Capacity-building support can take many forms and address a wide variety of issues.


In an effort to offer greater insight into the practice and utility of capacity building support, this report explores common forms of capacity-building support used by impact investors, many of which resemble forms of nonfinancial support historically leveraged by conventional investors. While both impact and conventional investors use capacity-building support to strengthen the underlying businesses of investee companies, impact investors also use it to enhance and extend their impact.
