Overview: BCVF is a leading community development venture capital fund that invests throughout the Northeast, providing equity investments in high-potential businesses that create a “double bottom-line” of financial and social returns. We view job creation as a primary indicator of social return but also invest in businesses that provide quality goods and services to lower-income communities or other disadvantaged populations, enhance the stability of lower-income or rural neighborhoods, or are women or minority-owned business enterprises. In addition, we seek companies that produce products that enhance the environment or reduce pollution.
