MAZE - Solving for Impact is a Lisbon-based social finance intermediary. It was founded in 2013 with the mission of unlocking capital towards social change in Portugal by working with impact ventures, investors and the public sector.

The Social Investment Lab was created with financial and non-financial support from the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation.

Since 2013, it has been involved in the creation of several cornerstone initiatives in Portugal, such as the Portuguese Social Investment Taskforce (currently part of the Global Social Impact Investment Steering Group), Portugal Inovacao Social (a 150M wholesaler initiative using EU Structural Funds) and the launch of the first Social Impact Bond in Portugal (Code Academy Jr).
