Industry Focus: We only invest in financial technology companies that provide consumer finance products targeting the un- and underbanked consumer markets. This includes payments solutions, credit solutions, and savings and investment instruments for the underbanked. We are interested in both customer-facing products and services, as well as business-to-business solutions within our underbanked focus.
Stage: Core seeks early growth stage investment opportunities. We seek companies with a strong management team in place, a completed product with some market validation and one or two initial reference accounts.
Geography: Core is focused on companies that serve people based in the United States.
Investment Size: Core will make its initial investments between $1,000,000 to $3,000,000 and seeks to reserve adequate capital to remain an active partner through a company’s growth.
Social Impact: As a “double-bottom line” fund Core seeks excellent financial returns as well as the ability to create a positive social impact on the lives of the underbanked. We screen all our investments for their ability to deliver both short- and long-term value for low-income consumers.
Contact: For companies who meet these criteria, we are happy to discuss their offering and explore if there is a mutual fit. Please send an executive summary to email@example.com.
