Intellecap is a social enterprise advisory firm that works in developing markets in order to create social change. Founded in 2002, some of their services include business consulting, investment banking, microfinance, technology development as well as becoming a center of knowledge on the social business sector.

Central to the Intellecap mission is the traditional social business idea that we can solve social problems using market-based strategies. Intellecap’s clients are wide-ranging. From banks, businesses, investors, corporations and microfinance institutions to non-governmental organizations and governments, Intellecap is far-reaching. Throughout all of the firm’s clients, the main goal, though, is somewhat similar. Intellecap encourages its various clients who are “looking to adopt profit-making social business models and to contribute effectively to an ecosystem that has the potential to draw millions of people out of poverty,” according to the Intellecap website. What’s more, the areas that the company specializes in are broad and include education, health care, rural markets and poverty. Additionally, Intellecap has four offices wordwide: Mumbai, India; Hyderabad, India; Delhi, India; and Palo Alto; United States.

Intellecap oversees numerous publications including Microfinance Insights and Beyond Profit in order to bring publicity to the social sector, as well as to spark inspiration to those looking to drive change in their communities.

Intellecap’s focus is on social and economic issues, but environmental issues are also under its radar. For instance, the Rockefeller Foundation allowed Intellecap to incorporate research on eco technology, as well as models that focus on sanitation, water scarcity and climate change.

What kind of difference does Intellecap really make? According to their website, they have intermediated more than $100 million in capital to development programs and opportunities internationally. Unquestionably, Intellecap puts both the “think” and the “do” in ‘think and do’ tank.
