In 2010, Village Capital launched in India in partnership with Dasra-Social Impact. The entire cohort split into two teams, and each team conducted extensive due diligence and assessed each enterprise for investment readiness. The entrepreneurs took incredible ownership of the process, deciding the procedure and criteria for investment. The group used a combination of financial viability, potential to scale and impact, and team assessment to choose two enterprises for investment.
Represented sectors included: Healthcare, Agriculture, Education, Livelihoods, Financial Services, Water/Sanitation
