About Quantified Ventures

Quantified Ventures is an outcomes-based capital firm. Leveraging deep content expertise and extensive capital relationships, we plan, finance, and develop transformative projects and programs that create health, social, and environmental impacts for a growing array of public and private organizations.

The large and growing market for impact investment capital is challenging the former notion of a trade-off between financial and social returns. By deploying impact capital to social enterprises that are demonstrably creating positive impact, we can support their sustainability and accelerate society’s ability to address the world’s most pressing challenges. At Quantified Ventures, we simplify access to impact capital to scale solutions and interventions that drive true social change through innovative financing mechanisms.

What We Do

Quantified Ventures fosters systems change through consulting, project development, and investment. We work with innovative organizations in the social, public, and private sectors in identifying, designing, and structuring impact investment transactions, through outcomes-based financing. We advise nonprofit organizations and private social enterprises with a demonstrated track record and evidence of program outcomes in preparing for and securing impact capital. We help governments, health plans, health systems, and public agencies align payment with the achievement of outcomes. Lastly, we work with impact investors to optimize their capital deployment strategies to maximize social and financial returns. 

Leveraging our own tri-sector experience, we believe that moving the needle on the biggest social challenges will be driven by collaborative leadership from public, private, and social sectors. Most critically, we cultivate a focus on transaction efficiencies and scalable investment products because we believe that both are required to grow a self-sustaining impact investing market.
