Beyond Capital Joins Aspen Network of Development Entrepreneurs
"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.
ABOUT: Beyond Capital Fund
Beyond Capital is an impact investment fund that invests in for-profit social enterprises throughout India and East Africa. We invest in businesses that are focused on greater access to health care, water, sanitation and energy, as well as food security and financial inclusion, which can increase the quality of life and standard of living for consumers at the bottom of the pyramid. Though we seek market rate financial returns, Beyond Capital is structured as a non-profit, which permits us to emphasize fidelity to our social mission alongside our financial mandate.
