PEOPLE, PLANET, PROSPERITY, PURPOSE

Harve$t Impact by 10C Shared Space builds upon our own social finance journey, with a vision of locally supported projects creating a more resilient and sustainable community.

Now, more than ever, food is at the heart of this work.

Working alongside the CFE iHub and partners in the Our Food Future project, Harve$t Impact is exploring the continuum of social investing - from philanthropy to investing.

We believe that smart cities invest in themselves. We hope that you do as well. By working together, we can create new businesses and collaborations – including not-for-profit solutions that are the core engines of the social, environmental and economic change we seek. Let’s build a movement towards a circular food economy!

Inspired by the planet’s natural cycles, a circular food economy reorganizes and regenerates the systems that feed us, eliminating waste, replenishing our ecological systems, sharing economic prosperity, and nourishing our communities. In Guelph-Wellington, we are working to build a Circular Food Economy that will achieve a 50% increase in access to affordable nutritious food, create 50 new circular economy businesses and collaborations and achieve a 50% increase in circular economic revenue by recognizing the value of waste.

The Harve$t Impact team is working to shine a light on current projects.

Active Project Goals

COMMUNITY FUNDRAISING

Community fundraising initiatives to support the SEED in their large-scale response to COVID-19, launched in April 2020.

SOCIAL FINANCE FUND

In late 2020, we will launch Harve$t Impact’s Social Finance Fund, with a goal of building a pooled fund of $2,000,000 to create local investment opportunities and provide seed financing investments to Guelph and Wellington’s leading circular solution businesses and collaborations. Work is ongoing to develop fund structures with immediate calls to investors, foundations, partners and financial institutions to participate.
