The ACE Venture Fund case is a 501(c)3 social venture fund that hopes to invest in projects that help the poor around the world.

The case provides opportunities for students to: understand how to develop a cohesive strategy for a venture focused on maximizing social value; explore the range of approaches available to evaluate the social impact of investments in the nonprofit sector as well as in the field of corporate social responsibility; appreciate the importance of defining the metrics, especially in the field of social value creation, since there are no standardized definitions for even the commonly used metrics; understand the specific data needs under various approaches; and understand the implications of the data requirements of various approaches on project selection for funding.

Description for case is given below :
Michelle Foster was the general partner of Northwest Community Ventures (NVC), a for-profit equity fund with a socially responsible mission. Following its mandate to invest in rural communities in Oregon and Washington State, Michelle’s group depended on outreach venues such as luncheons to attract and build trust with rural entrepreneurs who worked far from the world of traditional venture capital. In early 2005, NCV had just over eight years remaining on its ten-year charter, but Michelle was already thinking about how to best position herself for raising a follow-on fund in year three. As with any venture fund, she’d be out looking for investors long before performance results were in on her current effort. Her concern was whether institutional investors could be attracted to the fund’s unique brand of socially responsible venture capital-especially if better returns were available elsewhere, at lower risk. Her primary challenge, however, was Eileen O’Brien, the passionate founder of Grassroots Business Initiatives (GBI), NCV’s high-profile, non-profit parent organization. At first, their vastly different business philosophies had been a source of respect, philosophical curiosity and even amusement. Increasingly, though, that relationship had become strained by the pressures that both women were facing in order to satisfy their respective-and highly disparate-goals and obligations.
