About Pymwymic

Pymwymic is the ‘Put Your Money Where Your Meaning Is Community,’ Europe’s longest standing peer-to peer membership of families, philanthropists and individual investors who support for-profit companies creating global solutions. Over two decades, they have advocated, and invested into more than 60 companies, and introduced thousands of investors to impact. Now, with the creation of the Pymwymic Impact Investing Cooperative, they intend to guide family-led European impact leadership into the next generation, and move sectors forward. The Pymwymic Impact Coop is their investment arm, and part of a larger Pymwymic ecosystem that includes the Field Building Center, and a Donor Fund. Pymwymic's Motto is “Learn, Share, Invest”.

Pymwymic Impact Coop is the first peer-to-peer impact holding company, welcoming mission-aligned families and individual investors as shareholders.

Pymwymic Donor Impact Involve Fund (DIIF) welcomes family and corporate donation capital and catalyses early stage companies.

Pymwymic Field Building Centre brings the impact movement to new investors, new countries, and offers experience-based and sector-focused reports that build impact knowledge. They welcome grants to support this work.

We became a B Corp because we believe in the power of the collective, and of joining a community of other companies who recognize their commitment to society and the earth. For us, it is a natural evolution of our 20-year history of advocating for business as a force for good. We are happy to be the Netherlands' first B Corp, and will help to support its rollout around Europe.

The Change We Seek®

Pymwymic's mission is to build a community of European investors who are conscious about and active in impact investing, using their wealth to support enterprises and organizations who are making positive impact in the world. Pymwymic is a peer-to-peer network of families, philanthropists, and individual investors who share investment opportunities, education, and community events. Pymwymic believes all of us must Put Our Money Where Meaning Is.

What makes us a better company?
