History

Pioneers Fund: 1994 – 2002

Pymwymic started out with investments in unknown but visionary technology with the most noticeable: bringing Ben & Jerry’s to the Benelux. The Pymwymic pioneers include Frank van Beuningen, Eckart Wintzen (Origin), Jan Willen Nieuwenhuys (Fair Capital Partners) and Jan Oosterwijk (The Body Shop).

Matchmaking Platform: 2002 – 2008

The pioneers saw the ‘first-mover’ companies were in need of more patient capital with a long-term outlook. Coming from multi-generation family businesses, they understood the concept of steward ownership and decided to become an open collective, building awareness and matchmaking people to businesses.

The global financial crisis created massive interest for a more ethical way of investing. With the help of Margaret van Beuningen-McGovern, Pymwymic grew into a strong community of impact-minded wealth holders.

Pymwymic Impact Investment Cooperative: 2017 onwards
 
In 2017, Pymwymic transformed into an Impact Investing Cooperative through which impact investments are done. By showing how we realise solid financial returns, we’re motivating the entire industry to act more responsibly.
