Toniic is currently hiring a Manager for the curation of the Impact Terms Project, a public resource focused on actionable content on emerging trends and innovations in impact investing structures and terms. The ITP was created in 2014 by a dedicated team of founders and seeded with philanthropic support, and is designed for entrepreneurs, investors and other financial professionals. Its goal is to spread the innovations in structure and terms to increase the amount of capital deployed and improve the alignment between investor and investee. Toniic started curating the Impact Terms Project in 2018.
Toniic is a global network of action-oriented impact investors: high net worth individuals, family offices, foundations, and endowments. Toniic increases the velocity of money and services into impact investing to address global challenges. Toniic’s members commit to discover, evaluate, nurture and invest in enterprises, funds, and other financial products that are changing the world for the better.
Toniic members are active impact investors, investing in early stage direct deals, in one or more asset classes and/or take an impact portfolio approach. Toniic is in the process of expanding its global presence significantly, while also going deeper with its current members to enhance their investment practice, and by extension, their potential for impact. The core mission of Toniic is to empower impact investors.
Toniic’s values are integral to its engagement in the world with its members and business partners:
Entrepreneurial & optimistic
Global & local
Open & collaborative
We also make our own business decisions with concern for people and planet. We seek to be the kind of business our members would invest in were we structured as a “for profit.” While our legal structure (and accordingly tax and accounting) is non-profit, the culture of the Toniic team is high performance and focused on measurable impact, and the senior team comes from the entrepreneurial for-profit world.
About Impact Terms Project
The Impact Terms Project (“ITP”, accessible at https://impactterms.org) offers practical guidance to investors, entrepreneurs, and intermediaries seeking to generate social and environmental impact while achieving financial returns. ITP provides example investment contract provisions (“terms”) for impact investments, sample term sheets, case studies, and guidance on alternative investment structures. Building on its success as a pilot, ITP can be useful to investors, entrepreneurs, and intermediaries across the impact investing ecosystem and act as a convening space for the best ideas in impact terms to emerge. By reducing the transaction costs of impact investing and helping experienced practitioners develop a set of “sound practices” for impact investment, ITP can both lower the barriers to entry into impact investing for investors and help empower impact entrepreneurs.
To fulfill this vision, Toniic is currently hiring a Manager who will be actively involved in the implementation of the strategy set by the Impact Terms Project Advisory Board and Toniic Board of Directors.
