BANNER: Reset Tourism Fund - Helping to grow businesses that maximize the positive impact of the tourism industry.

Does your high-impact tourism company need financing to grow?

If so, we’re here to help. The Reset Tourism Fund invests catalytic capital into sustainable and community-enhancing tourism businesses.

We believe the future of tourism gives ALL travelers life-enhancing experiences, helps host communities thrive, and ensures that the natural and cultural resources that make travel special will be respected, restored, and regenerated.

We believe that tourism is a powerful and underutilized tool for fighting poverty, empowering underestimated entrepreneurs, and combating climate change.

If you believe this too and are building your tourism business with these beliefs in mind, then we’d love to hear from you.

Criteria for Investment

Your business must directly connect with the tourism industry.
Examples include:

  • Hotel, B&B, or other lodging
  • Tour guide, host, or facilitator
  • Restaurant or catering in which tourists are a primary customer
  • Museum, activity, other event space that caters to tourists
  • Tourist-based transportation
  • B2B – Serves businesses within the tourism industry
