Ignite: The Philippine Impact Investment Fund Ignite Impact Fund is an early-stage venture capital fund that invests in the Filipino, to give you financial return and a measurable social and environmental impact. Investing in the Philippines to modernize agriculture and mariculture, as well as providing much needed broadband infrastructure, will be key to this growth. We anticipate that investing for impact in the country will rise as a result of its growing, educated population, stable financial markets, and large unmet social needs.
