Description

Jeff Ochs’ cause is to provide capital to entrepreneurs advancing a charitable purpose who can’t attract traditional angel investment. Venn offers below-market-rate loans, a crying need of companies. Ochs’ vehicles are called PRIs (short for “program-related investment”), unknown and underutilized outside of a very small group of foundations. Venn has raised nearly $1.8 million from donors and deployed more than $1 million of that into PRIs directed in all sectors that advance charitable goals.
