Introduction :


To identify SDG-enabling enterprises and support them in attracting investments, SDG Impact and CIIP are launching the ‘Pipeline for SDGs Program’ (PFSP). The program aims to build on the market intelligence developed through the work on the SDG Investor Maps and create a pipeline of impact-focused enterprises to be matched with fit-for-purpose funding options. The program will run for two years between 2023-2025. Thematically focused on Climate Adaptation, Healthcare and Education, the program will focus on a cohort comprising of 25 to 30 participating growth-stage enterprises from Indonesia, the Philippines and Vietnam to start with.

How does PFSP define growth stage companies? For PFSP, a growth stage enterprise is the one that is past the bootstrapping stage, has received seed funding, and thereby can conthe contractor that they have undergone financial due diligence. Such an enterprise has established its commercial operations, has a steady revenue stream with a customer base and is looking to scale its product/service offering or its operations beyond its current regional focus. 

The key objectives that PFSP will drive are:

  1. Enable growth-stage enterprises to develop authentic impact narratives, by adopting fit-for-purpose IMM (Impact Measurement and Management) practices.
  2. Support growth-stage enterprises to attract fit-for-purpose capital to scale SDG-enabling solutions, in selected thematic areas and developing markets.
  3. Implement a scalable approach to nudge private sector behaviors towards embedding impact in business/investment strategy and decision-making
Given the multi-stakeholder approach of the PFSP, UNDP is seeking to onboard an experienced partner to bring in a strong business advisory and support function to complement the SDG impact objectives of the program. The program will also seek to drive transactions through investor matchmaking efforts.

The program will offer comprehensive Impact Management and Measurement (IMM) capacity building with business and leadership coaching/mentoring to manage for impact, ultimately helping companies build an impact thesis to match their investment rationale. PFSP will be built using the deep experience of the integrated IMM practice at UNDP that brings together UNDP SFH’s flagship offerings such as SDG Impact Standards, experience from Business Call To Action (BCTA) and Impact Venture Accelerators.

The business partner will work with UNDP to create a well-integrated business+impact curriculum, rally fit-for-purpose networks and resources geared to achieve the objectives of the program and poise the enterprise cohort for successful fundraises.
