Wow – 2016 – what a year. It started off with a bang, with a new (our first) promo video and a fresh, new Pique Fund impact investment opportunity, run in partnership with FrontFundr. Our investor community doubled in size as a result of that campaign.
2016 was the year of investments failing to complete at the 11th hour and successful follow-on investments. Pique Fund increased its investment in Beanworks and ePact Network and we’re excited to continue to support our portfolio companies as they grow, evolve, and make a positive impact in the business community through their products and services, their leadership, and business culture.
We finished off the year with the exciting launch of Integrated Investing: Impact Investing with Head, Heart, Body, and Soul. The book is a valuable resource for new and experienced impact investors, helping them make investment decisions to achieve impact and create a better future. It also gives a glimpse at how we make decisions at Pique Fund, which a living, breathing example of how Integrated Investing can be applied.
In case you missed it, here’s a recap of some of the media appearances from the past year:
- Business Television, episode 1, episode 2, episode 3
- She Built That
- Business in Vancouver on Roundhouse Radio
- Vancouver Observer
