We Invest in People and Ideas               Innovation Does Not Respect Tradition, and Neither Do We               We are Creatives, Strategic Advisors, Venture Capitalists, Venture Philanthropists and Social Entrepreneurs who Bring Meaning to Investing               Innovation Without Purpose is an Empty Exercise

We are Social Entrepreneurs

"We view the underserved, not as burdensome mouths to feed, but as future innovators and
leaders. Developing human capital and creating sustainable economic development are
the keys to urban renewal. Yet, separate but equal is unachievable and disingenuous
without equal access to capital, resources and opportunity, and the gentrification
devastating communities of color must be checked"
- Zenviba Chairman Gregory S. Daniel.

We Change Communities, Change Lives and Create Opportunities

Zenviba Benefit Corporation is a pioneer in social transformation with disruptive technologies in disadvantaged communities left behind by globalization. We are Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) impact investors doing well by doing good. We generate innovative sources of financing and revenue streams that produce direct measurable impacts and multiple bottom lines of prosperity. Our unique Fourth Sector business model is a public-private-philanthropic partnership acting collectively as a Social Venture Intermediary, operating for-profit and non-profit affiliates to accomplish social missions whose benefits will inure to communities for years to come. This is critical as federal, state and local governments have cut social program funding. We engage at-risk communities pre-gentrification, which exhibit the same easily identifiable hallmarks of disinvestment and devaluation caused by redlining and code violations.

Economic Community Craft

We take a holistic approach to community craft and address the total needs of justice, equity and opportunity that levels the playing field and improves the quality of life for all. We maintain that when thoughtfully executed, urban renewal can enhance community asset management; create engines for sustainable economic development and diversification; foster innovation, environmental stewardship, job creation and workforce development to address skill gaps; knock down artifical barriers and structural inequalities; and eliminate food deserts, bank deserts and communication deserts. Our investments and initiatives support existing property owners and stakeholders to eliminate slum and blight and improve socio-economic conditions, while educating elected officials and staff on the enormous benefits of investing in and preserving historic communities of color.

We Bring Meaning to your Investment

Zenviba Opportunity Fund targets the postal zip codes of 94124 in San Francisco, CA that encompasses the Bay View/Hunter's Point neighborhood and 33401 in West Palm Beach, FL that encompasses the Northwest neighborhood. There are dozens of commercial and residential properties in major disrepair and in foreclosure that could be aquired and renovated, as well as empty lots that could be developed, all of which would spark economic activity to benefit the current residents without gentrification.

Zenviba Donor Advised Fund accepts and manages charitable donations on behalf of organizations, families and individuals in the form of cash deposits, securities or other financial instruments. The Fund provides a flexible and convenient way for donors to pass money thru to charities as an alternative direct giving without the cost and hassles of creating a private foundation. Our contributors retain advisory privileges over how their account is invested and how it distibutes money to charities.

Venturata Fund provides equity, bridge and gap financing for projects that diligently preserve and restore historical structures, as well as insight and expertise on creative adaptive re-uses that add a new dimension. We provide capacity building equity capital to overlooked minority-owned privately-held technology and manufacturing companies with highly disruptive ideas and great growth prospects that have the potential to generate thousands of new high paying jobs within our underserved communities. 

Justice Bonds provide a low-cost financing option for essential social services and infrastructure projects. As income inequality has reached record disparities, demands for new services have risen, community healthcare facilities are facing low reimbursements from federal and state payers resulting in poor care or closures, and lack of high-speed internet access has widened the digital divide. The first of their kind Bonds were issued in conjunction with the 150th anniversary of the 13th Amendment in 2015.

Proprietary research, underwriting, management and administration of Zenviba Special Purpose Vehicles and Justice Bonds  are provided by Zenviba Capital LLC.  The Funds and Bonds are open to select Corporations, Institutions, Foundations, Endowments and Philantropists.

We are Multipliers of Prosperity

Zenviba believes that it takes a village to raise a child and thriving communities to build a prosperous nation. Our partnerships with  Donor Advised Funds, foundations, philanthropists, municipalities, CRAs and CDCs enable entities and First Nations to leverage their public-sector funding with Program Related Investments (PRI), Mission Related Investments (MRI), CDFIs, banks, private equity and venture capital to finance projects. Our team has extended $1 Billion in credit and invested $500 Million in 1,000 companies, administered $100 Million in grants, created 50,000 jobs, and provided 100,000 hours of training and technical assistance to 15,000 entrepreneurs.

Return on Investment

We create superior Fourth Sector public-private-philanthropic partnerships that transform historically blighted areas into vibrant communities. Our scalable and replicable turn-key projects meet IRS criteria for PRI's and MRI's, decrease investment risk and produce multiple bottom line outcomes and we seek virtuous social impact capital from philanthropists and foundations, who unfortunately, currently only fund 20% of their PRI goals, for a collective $43 billion annual distribution, due to a dearth of quality investment projects that don't jeopardize their charitable foundation status. We offer the following benefits to our social venture partners:

  • We offer Accredited Investors tax-free, tax-deferred or tax-deductible ROI

  • We offer CRA's and CDC's opportunities to leverage their funds

  • We offer Banks and Financial Institutions CRA credits for their investments

  • We offer First Nations economic diversification, food and energy security and financial independence

  • We offer Donor Advised Funds Foundations and Philanthropists a ROI

  • We offer Emerging Economies, States and Municipalities access to leading technologies
