Catalyst provides capital and resources for projects and businesses that produce meaningful and positive social and environmental impacts.
Catalyst is an impact investment management firm, organized as a public benefit corporation (B Corp), that focuses on strategies that achieve attractive risk-adjusted investment returns, social impact, and environmental sustainability; a strategy that is now commonly referred to as "triple bottom line." Through a series of managed funds and public-private partnerships, we provide debt and equity capital to small business owners and mission-driven real estate developers, and develop affordable and workforce housing, charter schools, healthcare facilities and other community-focused projects in low-income and under-served communities nationwide.
Joseph Bonora, President
Our mission is to promote economic growth and revitalize communities by providing flexible and innovative capital to mission-driven developers and small business owners, and developing projects that produce safe and affordable housing, promote environmentally sustainability, and provide high quality health care and education, primarily in low-income and under-served communities.
Revitalizing communities and positively impacting the lives of those who live within those communities is at the core of our mission.
Our core values drive the decisions we make and shape the culture within our firm. We consistently look to these values to inspire and motivate us, and use them to guide the way in which we do business. Impact investing is an exciting and dynamic business, but it can be challenging at times to stay focused on the mission. By establishing and following a set of guiding principles, we are able to maintain our focus and deliver superior financial returns alongside tangible and measurable social and environmental impacts.
