Impact Investment Shujog fosters growth, maturity, innovation, and market readiness in the social enterprise (SE) and impact investment sectors in Asia to help address urgent social and environmental problems.
Shujog, a Bengali word meaning “opportunity”, will prepare SEs in Asia to have the organizational accountability, sound governance, and fiscal accountability to raise impact investment funds from social venture funds or through its sister company Impact Investment Exchange (IIX).
Asia is uniquely positioned to suffer much of the world’s development challenges. It contains 60% of the world’s population – with immense population density and heightened vulnerability to economic downturns, social upheaval, and environmental degradation. Yet only a tiny fraction of market-based initiatives reach populations commensurate with the scale of the problems they aim to address.
SEs in Asia are missing out on tens of millions in dollars of capital for expansion because they do not have the proper structures in place.Their needs range across a wide spectrum of operational, managerial, fiscal, and strategic processes. Impact Investors interested in Asian SEs need credible external monitoring, commonly understood standards of quality, access to comparative data and rates of return, and an ability to invest in partnership with others.
