NEW YORK - Feb. 1, 2018 - PRLog -- WASHINGTON, D.C. – Beyond Capital Fund, an impact investment fund that invests in seed-stage, for-profit social enterprises serving impoverished communities throughout India and East Africa, is pleased to announce its membership to the Aspen Network of Development Entrepreneurs (ANDE). ANDE is a global network of 280+ organizations that are dedicated to the support of small and growing businesses (SGB) in over 150 countries.

"This is an exciting time for us to join ANDE as we have recently concluded three investments in East Africa," explainsEva Yazhari, CEO and Co-Founder of Beyond Capital. "Through the ANDE network, we look forward to sharing our knowledge of seed-stage investing, networking with like-minded investors and companies, and spreading the word about impact investing more widely."

ANDE members share the view that targeted support for small and growing businesses, SGBs, represents the most effective way to create the kinds of jobs that can lift families, and entire nations, out of poverty. ANDE members support "the missing middle"— the small and growing businesses that are the engines of growth in emerging markets, and have the potential to address critical social and environmental challenges.
