We need new, collaborative models.

Equilibrium combines the patience of philanthropic capital and the innovation of entrepreneurship to create impact at scale.

We can balance returns with social impact.

We believe that venture funds don’t have to choose between solid financial returns and social impact. That’s why our fund invests into the Social Determinants of Health: metrics proven to have both high financial and impact ROI.

Inclusion is strength.

Our EQIV Fund I will allocate at least ⅓ of all funding to Black and brown founders, at least ⅓ of all funding to women founders, and the remainder to all others.

Our models will scale. Our models will travel.

We will test new, collaborative funding models and invest into novel and innovative business ideas focused on the social determinants of health. We'll focus on the Southeast US first, then scale and export the ideas that work to emerging communities throughout the United States.
