transform capital's philanthropy
At Transform Capital, we have a different approach to impact via venture capital. Our General Partners have committed to donating 50% of our carried interest to philanthropic causes selected by our LPs - at no cost to them.
Transform’s investors may direct donations to one of our strategic partners, or the not-for-profit of their choosing. The National Geographic Society is one of a dozen Transform Capital strategic partners.
the conventional profit-sharing model vs transform capital
Traditionally, General Partners (GPs) at VC firms earn a carried interest (share of the profits) for their efforts. In most cases, profits are split 80/20, 80% to the LPs and 20% to GPs.
At Transform Capital, our GPs have committed to donating 50% of our carried interest to philanthropic causes selected by our LPs. As such, the profits are split 80/10/10, 80% to the LPs, 10% to the non-profits the LPs choose over the life of the fund, and 10% to the GPs.
