The Women Investing in Women Initiative (WIN-WIN) enables you to invest in women through healthcare, microfinance, and education.
WIN-WIN launched in March 2012 and has surpassed $20 million invested in December 2013. Building on the lessons learned from the pilot WIN-WIN, we made a commitment in September 2014 to invest an additional $20 million through WIN-WIN in organizations that develop and market clean technologies and energy solutions, a sector that can create an outsized impact on the health of women in the developing world.
The Paradigm Project, a current WIN-WIN portfolio partner, is one of the organizations leading the way in developing and distributing clean cookstoves, a technology that prevents harmful smole inhalation and consumes wood more efficiently.
As the first women-focused impact investment available to everyday investors, WIN-WIN represents a milestone in impact investing.
WIN-WIN would not have happened without the vision and support of The Citi Foundation, The Women in the World Foundation, Criterion Ventures, The Cordes Foundation, and Eileen Fisher.
