Kindred Update

We’re currently at the investment phase with our first cohort, ready to make the first tranche of Kindred money available in the new year. 41 STOs went through our money panels as part of the first cohort, and we’re focused on supporting them through the investment process and co-designing the financial products with them.

In the new year we’ll be looking for our next cohort, which is likely to go forward with the money panel in late spring/early summer. We’ll be available to support STOs as they move through the five steps for investment readiness, so keep an eye on our social media platforms for our next series of events. They’ll give you an opportunity to get involved in the Kindred community, collaborate with other STOs and work towards our five stages for investment readiness.

To recap, we have five steps for investment readiness from the STOs we work with:

  • your company’s financial position
  • your story – told or typed, in words or pictures
  • your social impact
  • your collaboration with other STOs
  • your ask – what will you do with your investment?
