SustainVC and PCC Funds History

The first SustainVC Patient Capital Collaborative (PCC) fund was launched in 2007 through a partnership with Investors' Circle (IC) to offer a professionally-managed fund for IC members and to leverage IC's broad deal flow. The funds were then expanded to include non-IC Limited Partners and now five funds have closed: PCC ’07, PCC ’09, PCC ’11, PCC ’13, and PCC ’15.  The SustainVC PCC portfolio includes 32 high-impact companies across a broad range of sectors and geography. SustainVC funds have the goal of returning measurable social and environmental impact as well as market rate financial returns by backing solutions that share a vision of a sustainable, more equitable and healthier world.
