Pi investments was the first LP to commit to Impact America back in December of 2013--and is so thrilled that Founder Kesha Cash has recently completed her first close.
Impact America is an early stage equity fund investing $250k-$2M in high growth companies that improve the well-being of underserved communities and create high quality jobs. The fund supports best in class, diverse entrepreneurs in the US with businesses focused on Health & Wellbeing, Education, Essential Services and Financial Security.
Pi was extremely impressed with not only the vision, but track record of Kesha Cash who previously managed Jalia Ventures, a fund established to support social entrepreneurs of color serving low-income communities. Investments included companies like Red Rabbit, providing healthy food to children in low-income areas, and Pigeon.ly, significantly reducing the cost of communication between people in jail and their loved ones.
We look forward to supporting Impact America in expanding their "toolkit" as they seek to help their future portfolio companies, already deeply socially focused, expand their impact over time.
