How we work with

Social Entrepreneurs

Wilstar is a non-profit venture which is focused on social impact and supporting people who initiate sustainable lasting change to create a better world

At Wilstar we believe in solving some of the world’s greatest challenges, through innovation and through supporting social entrepreneurs and businesses that provide sustainable solutions to these challenges. The social entrepreneurs we support are typically early-stage socially or environmentally focused businesses, we believe have true scaling potential, thereby maximizing their impact. However, we also support more mature social businesses where impact is already evident though there is still growth potential, on these occasions we hope to assist in scaling the proven concept to other communities, so they can benefit from the innovation.

We seek to work together with social entrepreneurs over a period from 3-6 years providing varying funding amounts. The largest funding amounts are typically reserved for social entrepreneurs that have potential for systemic change. Additionally, Wilstar provides business development support to all our investees and we are especially focused on putting in place good governance procedures and impact measurement and management processes. This, we believe, allows our investees to accelerate their growth, both in terms of impact and financial independence. We are also invested catalysing likeminded capital into social and environmental investments and so support various ecosystem initiatives globally, to encourage that movement of funds into impact focused investments.

 The social entrepreneurs that we support typically:
  • Are early-stage.

  •  Provide innovative solutions to social or environmental challenges.

  •  Have true scaling potential, thereby maximising their impact or they are mature social businesses where impact is already evident though there is still growth potential.
