ABOUT US / OUR APPROACH
Why do we exist?
We believe that money plays a central role in building our society and should be allocated with the intention of having a positive impact.
We also believe that the world is improving and financial institutions have to evolve their role to improve it for everyone.
To develop attractive financial solutions where money generates abundance, equity and positive socio-environmental transformations.

VOX Capital actively contributed to the evolution of the impact field. Several initiatives and actions have been taken in this direction.
“Metrics in Practice” Group
We are part of the leadership group aimed at articulating and supporting intermediary organizations with the agenda for measuring impact of the work carried out with social businesses. The group brings together people from around 15 organizations, providing contact and the exchange of experiences among different actors within the impact ecosystem
Alliance for impact investing and business
This initiative was set up in 2014, with the purpose of strengthening the impact investing and businesses ecosystem in Brazil, mainly through two strategies: (1) production and dissemination of content, and (2) articulation with strategic actors. The local initiative is part of a multinational effort, led by the GSG (Global Steering Group). Vox Capital has been a member of the Alliance Committee since its inception, in 2014.
Impact Investing Working Group
We made the initial move to create the group and we are part of its leadership, seeking to help increase the collaboration between fund managers interested in impact and, through joint work, to advance main agendas for these actors in the field.

“Conversas de Impacto” (Impact Talks)
To promote the knowledge that circulates within the network of the main players of the impact investing ecosystem, we have created the “Conversas de Impacto” (Impact Talks). Initially, these talks took place through face-to-face rounds, but in order to reach more people, it has evolved into a podcast, where we invite leaders from the Venture Capital, Impact Management, and Financial Market ecosystems, who share their knowledge on the current status of the ecosystem and their visions for the future. Today we already have 10 episodes online, which you can listen to on the main streaming platforms.
Impact Business and Investment Forum
Along with other partners, Vox Capital has co-held the Forum biennially since 2014. The Forum is the largest meeting on the topic in Brazil. In 2018, it attracted an audience of more than 1,500 people and 70 speakers. In 2020, the Forum will be company-held with the ICE (Corporate Citizenship Institute) and the Impact Hub.
Global Impact Investing Network (GIIN) Investor Forum 2019
The GIIN Investor Forum is the largest gathering of impact investors around the globe. In 2019, the forum was held in Amsterdam and brought together more than 1,200 impact investing professionals from six continents. The forum provided new connections, sharing of ideas about new strategies, knowledge about the latest developments in the industry, and ways to drive continued market growth. In this edition, we were invited to share our experience in the “Financial and Impact Goal Setting by Investors" panel. Vox's participation, as speakers and sharing the experience of being the first impact investment fund in Brazil, brought important visibility to Brazil's impact ecosystem. Want to learn more?

We actively participate in the equity crowdfunding subgroup, part of the financial instruments and impact investing working group.
