Impact Investment Fund working in East Africa and India on water, waste and sanitation, healthcare and energy projects.



Summary

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 a registered 501(c)3 non-profit, which permits us to emphasize fidelity to our social mission alongside our financial mandate.

Social Impact

BCF provides investment capital and beyond capital services, high quality pro-bono legal services, to social enterprises. It uses the traditional investment approach but differs in its strict consideration and prioritization of social impact. BCF’s strategy is to play an active role with each company to have the power to preserve impact into the future. Furthermore, its social impact reporting systems adds an extra layer of focus to the company’s social impact.

BCF’s key advantage is the breadth and quality of its team, who are all committed volunteers and possess extensive expertise in finance, impact investing, restructuring, business development, law, HR, growth and governance. Further, to acknowledge local situations, BCF works with several local advisors on the ground.
