The world of community development finance has grown increasingly sophisticated in its multi-faceted responses to poverty, joblessness and environmental degradation. One of the most sophisticated approaches involves the marriage of the tools of venture capital and private equity investing with a wide range of social goals. This approach - what is termed by its adherents 'community venture capital'- has been successful at stimulating productive economic activity in resource-starved communities while encouraging the creation and growth of business dedicated to the 'double bottom line.' The authors of Standard Documents for Community Development Venture Capital Transactions have adapted the model documents found in Joe Bartlett's Equity Finance treatise for use by a coalition of funds engaged in a different kind of private equity investing.
