Bain Capital Double Impact pursues investments where we can utilize our unique capabilities to help mission-driven companies scale and drive meaningful change.
Proactively identifying companies that we can support in achieving their full commercial and impact potential is the critical first step in our investment process. By screening companies for both financial and impact potential, we identify where our active ownership can drive the best results on both dimensions.
Dedicated resource model: We have developed an outward-facing sourcing model that we believe positions us to better identify, target, and win opportunities.
Impact partner of choice: Our distinctive strategy of making middle market impact investments at scale has produced strong deal-flow from impact-focused management teams, intermediaries for high-impact businesses, and the portfolio companies of earlier-stage impact investors.
Focused thematic outreach: We develop investable theses in focused thematic areas that have strong industry dynamics and outsized opportunity for impact.
Cross-platform opportunities: Bain Capital Double Impact leverages the firm’s vast deal experience networks and resources, adding value through our impact focus.
We undertake diligence on the social and environmental impact of a company in conjunction with our commercial diligence process. We have built a dedicated investment team that has the experience and expertise to conduct commercial diligence with depth and rigor, and we bring corresponding rigor to our assessment of a company’s existing and potential impact.
We are active owners. We partner with each of our portfolio companies to design initiatives that maximize impact potential, and we drive implementation of these initiatives during our ownership period. BCDI works with company leadership to develop a strategic blueprint that identifies a clear set of objectives and initiatives to achieve full impact and commercial potential.
Driving toward social and environmental impact: Our Impact Blueprint, developed alongside the talent blueprint and business blueprint, offers a standard set of tools and a customized plan to drive the unique impact of each company in our portfolio.
