Impact Capital

Social impact through digital innovation

We believe that delivering value in today’s world includes consideration of the environmental, social, and governance (ESG) aspects. We know that reducing inequalities mean financial inclusion, gender, healthcare and education for all. We believe in the circular economy and responsible consumerism.

Technology for good is not just a catchphrase for us. Asia’s rapid but uneven development are challenges that we are addressing with a combination of capital and technology.

Reducing Inequalities

When the company she started was successfully acquired by an Indonesian conglomerate, Goh Yiping started her quest to help other female entrepreneurs succeed. With a decade of founding startups and investing in others, her efforts were recognized when she was named to the Peak’s Power List 2017.

Women hold up half the sky but run only 31% of all private US firms. The numbers in Asia would be even lower.

We reduce inequalities by focusing on financial inclusion, gender, healthcare and education.

Circular economy and Responsible consumerism

Ian and Ing, brother and sister, were no older than ten when they witnessed a problem and created a solution to solve it. Their answer – Qanemate – not only has the support of their family but has won the friendship and love of countless users and organisations.

What are we leaving behind for our young?

We get responsible consumers by focusing on easy adoption.

Technology for Good

Born into a farming family, Lin Pingping knows what backaches and calloused hands are like when her fields are tilled. She worked hard to put herself through schools, graduating with a PhD in computer science from Tsinghua University, and is now a thought-leader in the field of next generation internet.

Education provides uplift beyond the individual.

We get results by focusing on technology that do good.

Environmental and Sustainability

Liu Chuanjun graduated with a degree in engineering but decided to devote his life to agriculture after seeing the disparity in quality of life between the cities and the farms. By removing unethical practices and inefficiencies in the supply chain, he enabled farmers to earn more for the same, thereby improving the lives of their families in the process.

Every grain of rice in our bowl is won by the sweat of the brow. From the corn fields of China to the rice fields of Indonesia, farmers are usually at the part of the value chain where they work the hardest but reap the least.

We get a sustainable world by focusing on environmental and sustainability solutions.

Environment scanning
We scan the environment to identify risks and demand drivers so as to provide objective, quantifiable and actionable metrics.

Implementation
We work with local organisations to implement solutions that leverage capital and technology to dramatically improve conditions while respecting local practices.
