Project scope and objective
IDB Invest is considering an equity investment of up to US$10 million (inclusive of a US$5 million Blended Finance equity participation with resources from funds managed by IDB Invest) in the EcoEnterprises Partners IV, LP (the “Fund”), an impact investing fund that will offer tailored growth capital for small and medium nature-based businesses in the Amazonian, Andean, and Meso‑American regions.
The Fund will seek to invest in nature-based companies that promote positive environmental and social outcomes, with a focus on: (i) preserving and regenerating biodiversity (such as regenerative agriculture, agroforestry, sustainable aquaculture, and ecotourism); (ii) fostering climate solutions (including alternative proteins, renewable energy, and the circular economy); and (iii) promoting sustainable, inclusive growth (gender-inclusive and women-led companies, businesses that engage with indigenous communities, among others).
The Fund will be managed by the EcoEnterprises Capital Group (“EcoEnterprises”), a pioneer women‑founded and managed impact investing firm with a track-record of over 20 years building nature-positive portfolios in Latin America. EcoEnterprises seeks to generate development impact alongside market-level returns by providing long-term growth capital coupled with engaged value‑added services to help scale community-based businesses that contribute to biodiversity conservation, climate solutions, and the creation of inclusive, long-term economic opportunities for underrepresented peoples, including women and indigenous communities. To date, EcoEnterprises has made nearly 50 investments in more than ten different countries.
