Drashta IMPACT is a collaborative investment firm built to harness the power of collective innovation, intelligence and resources to solve the climate crisis
WHY WE EXIST
The window of opportunity to solve the climate crisis is fast closing, with the 2018 IPCC report stating that limiting global warming to 1.5°C would require rapid and far-reaching transitions in land, energy, industry, buildings, transport, and cities.
After many years of analysing this existential challenge, it became clear to us that a new approach was needed - one that would catalyse a collective and global response that is implemented at scale while being collaborative, aligned and exponentially increasing in its impact.
Drashta Impact is purpose-built, with our four pillars providing a holistic, multi-faceted strategy to tackle the climate crisis while simultaneously capitalising on the biggest economic opportunity of our time.
1. DE-RISKING IMPACT INVESTING
We make impact investing safer and more accessible to unlock a significantly larger quantum of capital for breakthrough solutions.
We enable key players to come together and align at a greater scale than ever before, further increasing impact and reducing risk.
3. ACCELERATING IMPACT SOLUTIONS
We accelerate the market adoption of proven solutions through our Systems Based Investment approach and in collaboration with our Ecosystem Partners.
We re-invest 100% of our net profits into subsequent impact investments, structured as a permanent capital vehicle with risk mitigation and impact creation at our core.
To collaboratively solve the climate crisis by unlocking capital at scale and enabling the exponential market adoption of proven solutions.
A thriving and prosperous world which is in ecological balance, using capitalism as a force for good.
We can't solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them
NEVER LOSE SIGHT OF THE BIGGER PICTURE
With the concept of "Drashta" as one of our guiding principles, we look to take an objective view point, to see through the noise and determine what is most important while keeping our sights set on our vision.
LEVERAGE THE POWER OF
We are on the brink of an unprecedented global crisis. Only a unified, concerted effort will be sufficient to avert this. Drashta's collaborative ecosystem is purpose-built to organise and mobilise innovation, capital and people.
THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX
The only way to achieve systems change is through innovative and elevated thinking. We bring this diversity of thought through our incredibly diverse team, collectively spanning 9 nationalities, speaking 13 languages and bringing experience from sectors such as private equity, cleantech, investment management, investment banking, international development, management consulting and insurance.
BREAK DOWN BARRIERS
We will always endeavour to understand the barriers that we face when working towards our mission so that we can find the most effective ways to break them down. We understand that risk is the biggest barrier that exists in preventing the flow of capital into impact, which is why we mitigate risk at every level, as a foundation for our success
GO WHERE OPPORTUNITY
We seek out opportunities where the impact and financial potential are greatest, which typically are not the simplest challenges or those closest to home.
CONSISTENTLY SEEK HIGHER LEVELS OF EXCELLENCE
We are fully committed to succeeding in achieving our mission and understand that in order to excel, we must continuously seek to improve ourselves, as an organisation and as people. This is why investing in our team’s continued development is of the highest importance to us.
Drashta is a Sanskrit word, translated as the observer, seer or self-awareness.
On an individual level, it is a state of the mind which is observing itself.
At the macro level, it is the ability to look upon the world from an objective viewpoint and see things for what they really are.
