About Drashta ImpacT

Drashta Impact de-risks impact investing to mobilise capital and accelerate solutions at the scale and pace needed to solve the climate crisis. While awareness of this existential threat has never been greater, a significant funding shortfall still remains to accelerate solutions, with risk being the primary bottleneck.


Drashta's risk mitigation overlay enables investors to be part of the solution by providing a secure, collaborative way to invest impactfully with the level of downside protection they require to move forward with complete assurance.
