Our Approach

Cicero Impact Capital has a unique approach to investment and solving big challenges.

Flexible Financing: Cicero provides revenue-based debt and equity capital to small and medium businesses too large for microfinance and too small for corporate bank lending. A revenue-based approach is a simple structure – easy to understand and implement, self-liquidating within a desired timeframe, and aligns investor and company incentives.

Capacity Building: In addition to financing, we work with our portfolio companies to create a transformation plan and provide consulting services to help implement key changes.

Investment Requirements

We look to invest in companies that meet the following criteria:

  1. Proven Business Model & Strong Management Team: We look for companies that have already proven their business model and have been in operation for at least two years.
  2. Strong Financial Performance: We invest in companies that are profitable with over $1M USD in annual revenues.
  3. Growth Phase: We invest in companies that are looking for an investment size of $1M – $6M USD to be used primarily as growth capital. We partner with companies in providing consulting services to support this growth.
  4. Impactful: Social impact must be core to company’s business model and aligned with the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
