Our Model

The Commonwealth Model

Commonwealth exists to produce high quality deal flow. We believe that quality can be achieved only when strong economic performance is joined by measurable social impact.

Commonwealth produces quality deal flow via three streams: Growth Equity Opportunities, Impact Accelerators, and CW Marketplace. Learn more below.

Growth Equity Opportunities

  • We identify deals featuring a typical venture capital alternative rate of return (~20%) with significant social impact.
  • Case Study: COhatch

Impact Accelerators

  • We produce high quality deal flow aimed at the world’s biggest problems; e.g., wealth inequality and criminal justice in America and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in Judea and Samaria. Economic outcomes feature a market rate of return.
  • Current operating partnerships include Minority Entrepreneurship Institute, Prison Entrepreneurship Program, and Integrated Business Roundtable.
  • Commonwealth works with each operating partner to develop investment ecosystems, hold pitch competitions, and manage a growing portfolio of impact companies.

CW Marketplace

  • Our network of investors and entrepreneurs recommend deals on an ongoing basis. What holds these deals together is a donor recommendation, a God-inspired solution to a meaningful problem, and a quality deal that offers good economics and meaningful social impact.
