FSIG participates in the MIINT Competition, a year-long impact investing competition with leading graduate business programs. The winning team is prized with a $50,000 investment in the team’s company.
Today, rapid population growth, climate change, and a widening rural-urban economic divide are driving the largest wave of urban growth in the history of humankind. While cities are at the core of economic development and promise new opportunities, the velocity and scale of urban migration threaten to strain scarce resources. In emerging markets, existing economic and social institutions will be unable to absorb the growing population. The unmet demand and the growing needs of vulnerable urban populations presents an opportunity for inclusive and environmentally minded businesses to generate returns and create impact.
Building on our team’s experiences living and working across geographies and sectors, we seek investments in sustainable business models that more efficiently deliver key products or services and improve quality of life for individuals in emerging markets. This means increasing affordability, accessibility, and usage of life-changing products and services addresses the challenges of urbanization. We do this while mitigating risks to emerging market consumers and businesses.
