In this episode, Hall welcomes Eva Yazhari, Co-Founder and CEO of Beyond Capital Fund. Beyond Capital Funds is a social impact fund that invests in for-profit social enterprises throughout India and East Africa. They invest in businesses within the health care, waste/water/sanitation, and alternative energy/clean technology sectors. Beyond Capital focuses on improving the quality of life and standards of living for consumers at the bottom of the pyramid. Though they seek market-rate financial returns, Beyond Capital is structured as a nonprofit. This allows them to emphasize fidelity to their social mission alongside their financial mandate.
