Raven Capital + provides advice to HNW investors, Family Offices, Foundations, Institutional Investors, Governments, Philanthropists and Indigenous Trusts on strategies for effective entry into the emerging Indigenous social finance ecosystem.
Raven Capital + has emerged as a preferred partner for public policymakers and foundations as they look for ways to support the development of a vibrant Indigenous innovation and social finance ecosystem. Our team takes on a small number of research assignments each year that we believe will meaningfully advance this ecosystem. Our most recent assignment was the development of an Indigenous Impact Measurement system that combined both objective metrics with Indigenous storytelling.
