SAN FRANCISCO (PRWEB) January 19, 2023
Beyond Capital Ventures (BCV), which recently shared the news of the final closing of its emerging markets venture capital fund, is pleased to announce its partnership with Impact Investors Inc., a financial planning and advisory services firm focused on sustainable and responsible impact investments. The two like-minded organizations both seek to further a critical mission: directing investments with the intention to catalyze companies improving the quality of life for emerging consumers in India and Africa, with a gender lens.
Impact Investors Inc. was instrumental in helping Beyond Capital Ventures achieve its final close on November 30, 2022, investing $1 million into the fund. As an anchor investor in the fund’s first close, Impact Investors Inc. was an early champion and advocate for the Beyond Capital Ventures team.
“Impact Investors Inc. has been a forward-thinking and engaged partner from the start. Their early anchor investment truly catalyzed our firm, and the support we have received since from Monica Miller and her team has been outstanding,” said Eva Yazhari, General Partner of Beyond Capital Ventures. “Our firms are deeply aligned on the belief that business can and should be a force for long-lasting impact. Together, we will invest in future industry leaders who will enact change and improve access to need-to-have services in India and Africa.”
Impact Investors Inc.’s early investment provided a strong signal to investors. They join the 70+ Limited Partners that have backed Beyond Capital Ventures, allowing the fund to move on to its next chapter: building a diversified portfolio of early-stage companies in India and Africa that are providing access to essential goods and services. This includes healthcare, financial inclusion, or climate adaptation solutions - so long as the company has an innovative, scalable business model with impact truly baked in.
Additionally, Impact Investors Inc. is passionate about catalyzing the next generation of female fund managers. Less than 10% of venture funds worldwide have female partners - and Beyond Capital Ventures’ balanced leadership team is committed to advancing a gender lens not just at the team level, but also in the portfolio, pipeline, and beyond.
“Financially prudent and direct impact exposure to Africa and India has been challenging to find. Beyond Capital Ventures is an impressive manager with its decade of experience in these regions and thorough due diligence process with portfolio companies,” said Monica Miller, Portfolio Manager and Partner, Private Assets at Impact Investors Inc.
