WHAT IS OUR INVESTMENT APPROACH?

Asha Impact uses the following approach when making for-profit equity investments:

Invest Early

Early-stage investments with an average deployment of Rs. 6 crores and meaningful stake. Focus on helping the company grow, prove business model viability and attract commercial capital within a 5 year horizon.

Co-Invest

Work closely in partnerships with like-minded impact investors and commercial VC funds – leverage own capital to do larger sized rounds, reduce risk through sharing of diligence and amplify post investment value-add.

Value-Add

Engaged at the board level in governance and strategic value-add to help the company scale-up. Provide own and external sector expertise and leverage the ecosystem and policy activities of the trust to create value for investees.

Please note that the investments mentioned have been made in the individual capacities of
