Capria Baseline
Impact Report 2019

With billions of dollars being dedicated to environmental and social governance and impact, it is safe to say that impact investing as a strategy to leverage private sector resources in order to deliver market rate returns while addressing endemic social and environmental issues is becoming mainstream.

We’ve been building Capria Network since 2015. In late 2018, Capria Ventures achieved first close of approximately $40M fund from which we are actively investing.

Our Theory of Impact

Capria’s theory of impact goes beyond providing catalytic capital, aiming to impact populations or systems that lack access to resources, essential products and services, or higher quality employment opportunities. In the long term, we envision dozens of new markets where thriving entrepreneurial ecosystems will be fueled by local and global capital flow, healthy competition will be established among entrepreneurs and local investors, and a network of advisors and mentors will support the continued ecosystem development.
