This year the focus is on on using data to accelerate achievement of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – creating a healthy, prosperous and just world.
Caspian will participate in a discussion on "The Role of Impact Investing in Scaling for the SDGs" on Thursday May 18th at 10:10 AM at the HICC in Hyderabad. We will discuss and debate the role of for-profit social enterprises in India’s digital economy, the interest they draw from impact investors, the scaling of such companies and their ability to create impact that addresses the Sustainable Development Goals. Caspian has made several investments in technology-driven businesses that operate in sectors including Food & Agriculture, Clean Energy, Education and Healthcare. This event will be an opportunity for us to exchange notes on business models and technology solutions that drive positive development impact.
