FMS training: Amit Sharma: Profiling Ventures for Impact Investing




For the second week of FMS training, CSIL welcomed Amit Sharma, founder of Empowerment Capital to talk about how we measure impact when looking at multinational corporations and organizations. Amit challenged participants to think about how we measure impact in the investment space and to come up with other ways in which impact could be measured. Questions were posed to the class such as: Does intent matter when looking at this space? Would you work for a global corporation such as Walmart, Goldman Sachs, and AT&T? Participants worked on analyzing different impact funds of companies from around the globe and critically questioning if those funds were a core part of these companies’ business models.
