CEI Ventures, Inc. manages socially responsible venture capital funds. The company was founded in 1994 to mobilize private capital markets while advancing social goals. We believe there is value added to financial returns by addressing a multitude of social concerns through all stages of the investment process, and that there are compelling investment opportunities in a range of markets underserved by the financing community.
Through investing in selected companies, we create quality employment opportunities, especially for people with low to moderate incomes, promote progressive management practices, support socially beneficial products and services, enrich distressed communities, and foster environment sustainability. We manage balanced equity portfolios, diversified by geography, industry, stage of business development and social benefits. Often with multi-staged financing, investments in companies will generally range from $250,000 to $1 million.
