As an impact venture firm that has been investing in early-stage enterprises throughout India and East Africa for 11 years — where every dollar invested impacts the lives of 28 individuals living at the bottom of the economic pyramid, and profits are reinvested back into the fund — Beyond Capital and its co-founder and CEO, Eva Yazhari, are in a unique position to speak about the needs of emerging markets and how innovative impact investing can be used to sustainably increase the quality of life and standard of living for the world’s most underserved communities.

In this live fireside chat and audience Q&A, Impact Entrepreneur’s Laurie Lane-Zucker welcomes Eva Helene Yazhari, to discuss, among other topics, how to:

• Design a diversified emerging markets investment strategy
• Reform the dominant extractive venture capital model
• Address imbalances in equity, power, and ownership in the investment process
• Use structural innovations like the “equitable venture pool” to implement structural change
• Most effectively support local founders and investors
• “Walk the talk” as an impact investor
• Use “camel investing” rather than the “spray and pray” Silicon Valley venture model
• Identify the “silent killers” of impact enterprises in emerging economies
• Improve the incubation/acceleration ecosystems in India and East Africa
