NPX structures results-based financings for companies with quantifiable impact. We mobilize both donation and investment capital using our novel, proprietary financial products and donation funds.

Our north star is impact and we engage with clients who want to achieve the highest levels of impact with their resources. We work on a wide range of issues ranging from criminal justice reform to economic mobility for underserved populations to global reforestation and poverty alleviation.

To date, NPX has structured 8 results-based financings raising $11M in donations and $9M in investment capital for high-impact organizations. Almost 100 individuals and institutions have participated as donors and/or investors, including 5 Giving Pledge members.
