This month we’re celebrating everything finance and as such, we spoke with Ben Grozier from Beyond Capital Fund, a member company that helps investment-worthy social enterprises.
Ben shares his top finance tips for small businesses, what projects he’s most proud of and who has inspired him most.
Traditional investors view investing in the early stages in emerging markets as high-risk. Thus, a lack of seed and angel investors in emerging markets has created a capital gap that prevents investment-worthy social enterprises from reaching the institutional capital that is available. We aim to fill this capital gap by investing in those early stage enterprises that have identified a fundamentally good business model, demonstrate they can reach profitability, and are in need of the capital to scale.
