CONCEPT

Focusing on urgent social issues, such as declining birthrate/working-population and aging population, “Hataraku FUND” was established in 2019 with a focus on “working people”. The Fund aims to support and promote the businesses creating environment where people can continue working even through and/or after various life events, including childcare and nursing care.

Unexpectedly, the COVID-19 has drastically altered the way we live, work, and educate.
As several countries face the crisis of medical collapse, there is a renewed awareness of the impact of losing essential social infrastructure, such as childcare and nursing care centers and schools, and thus the importance of protecting them.

We believe that our role as the “Hataraku FUND” is to protect ourselves, our families, the social infrastructure and eventually the people who work there, by quickly disseminating unique and game-changing services necessary for the development of new norms of work, education and care, and supporting them to become economically independent and self-sustaining businesses.

As the first Japanese Impact Investment Fund involving a diverse group of institutional investors, we aim to offer a wide range of investment in order to contribute to resolving social issues through the practice of impact investing, and ultimately to creating impact investment ecosystems.

MESSAGE

“I welcome the first impact report of this pioneering fund which leads the development of authentic impact measurement in Japan. It beats a path for many others to tread in the future, bringing powerful resources and innovation to tackling great social issues, such as those affecting an aging population. It shows the way forward because we cannot sufficiently help those whom society leaves behind through philanthropy and government alone, we need to bring private sector investment to drive real change.’
– Sir Ronald Cohen”
