Integrated Capital: An Antidote to Inequality
The Integrated Capital Card Deck is designed to help fund managers, funders and impact investors learn how to deploy integrated capital to close the racial wealth divide. The bilingual (English/Spanish) deck is made up of 121 cards in 8 suits that help match types of capital, transaction structures and impact criteria with small businesses and nonprofits that are contributing to building regenerative and equitable local economies.
Don’t Just Take Our Word For It.
“BII’s Integrated Capital Card Game is a fantastic learning tool! It’s a creative, effective way to find out about impact investing terms and learn which types of capital and transaction structures work best for different social enterprises. Our fellows love it because it’s interactive, fun and super practical.”
― DEB NELSON, Executive Director, Just Economy Institute
“The Integrated Capital Cards were a great addition to the impact investing class at Georgetown. It allowed students to not only grasp the tenets of the field but begin to think strategically about better aligning investment vehicles with mission and business models. Moreover, the leadership from the Boston Impact Initiative team was outstanding. Their knowledge, patience and instruction were very well received.”
― MELISSA BRADLEY, Professor at the McDonough School of Business at Georgetown University and Founder, 1863 Ventures
“The Integrated Capital Card game was a terrific exercise for our fellowship program. As a group with both newcomers to the field of impact investing and seasoned VCs, the breadth of the terminology and concepts revealed in the cards and through the case studies provided exposure on innovative funding mechanisms and a fun setting to apply them. Would definitely recommend it for beginners and experts alike!”
― HATTIE BROWN, Kirchner Food Fellowship with HBCUs
“The game night built members’ confidence with financial terms, deepened the group’s understanding of different types of transactions–especially in support of worker-owned or cooperative enterprises–for the purposes of growing a more just and sustainable economy.”
— NADAV DAVID, New England Regional Organizer, Resource Generation
“Using the BII Integrated Capital Cards provided an engaging and experimental learning opportunity for our board members to understand the many ways to structure flexible capital for entrepreneurs of color.”
— BENJAMIN VANN, Founder and CEO, Impact Ventures
