A new American reality
Today, Americans face overwhelming adversity, across financial security, rising healthcare costs, and high cost of poverty.
We invest in solutions
Our portfolio directly addresses these problems by working to break down some of the largest barriers perpetuating income inequality.
Lack of Financial Security
40% of Americans cannot cover an unexpected $400 expense. One out of every five Americans is not able to pay their current monthly bills.
Increasing access to productive financial products and lowering the transaction costs of everyday financial actions.
Increased Healthcare Costs
National health expenditures have increased 1000%+ per capita since 1979. Over 25% of adults skipped necessary medical care in 2017 because they couldn’t afford it.
Increasing the quality of care and positive outcomes and lowering the cost of medical services for low-to-moderate-income Americans.
High Cost of Poverty
Lowest earning Americans spend a disproportionate amount of income on food, housing, and other basic products and services. Low earners spend nearly 3x more the average American on transportation.
Human Services Tech
Increasing access to social services, as well as helping Americans find access to meaningful employment.
Investing for good.
TSEF has long invested in American companies focused on increasing access and economic opportunity for low-income communities across financial services, affordable health, future of work, and social services.
