Faith Based Social Entrepreneurship uses new start-ups to develop and implement solutions to social and cultural issues from a faith-based perspective.
TMF created a Launch Fund, which is a venture capital fund, to invest in faith based and socially responsible companies and non-profits.
Mentoring is a partnership, professionally, academically, or both, between someone with substantial experience and someone who wants to learn from that experience. AT TMF, we believe in connecting those experts with Social Entrepreneurs who want to make the world a better place.
Strategic planning is an organizational activity used to set priorities. Those plans ensure employees or volunteers are working toward intended outcomes and those plans become a measurement tool to evaluate an organization’s achievement of the goals they set.
We place social returns on equal footing with financial returns and provide long-term, patient capital that helps to support forward-thinking entrepreneurs who embody Wesleyan values. The Launch Fund at TMF is designated for Faith Based Social Entrepreneurs and we are eager to put this money to good use.
We started the Launch Fund because we believe an opportunity exists for the incorporation of faith within the entrepreneurial journey and we believe existing models for start-up capital are broken. Traditional investors tend to focus on short-term growth and profit, then quickly flip the companies in which they invest. We take a completely different approach to investing. We place social returns on equal footing with financial returns and provide long-term, patient capital that helps support forward-thinking entrepreneurs who embody Wesleyan values. Overall, our aim is to help steward the potential of like-minded start-ups.
Our strategy is to harness the wisdom and resources of like-minded partners to invest in early stage faith based social enterprises. These investments can generate financial success alongside profound social change. Whether it be funding, mentoring, or partnering TMF believes in making a better world by unlocking the faith of entrepreneurs to drive social change.
