Marigold Capital on Gender Lens Investing and Driving Collective Impact
Marigold Capital is an Impact Investment Strategy & Execution Firm based in Toronto, with a focus on gender, diversity, and inclusion investments. In this episode Jonathan Hera, Managing Partner, highlights gender lens investing, using a unique approach of investing in a cluster of companies to drive collective impact.
“Investing in solving for underlying problems, market failures and ways of building community, that’s something that we also need to do. so if we continue on the theme of investing in femetech and female reproduction and sexual health, there are many players of companies in this space, and in theory you can invest in them all and not solve problem. There are many problems not just THE problem. If we start thinking about how to build an ecosystem and how people can work together in partnerships to build a more coherent strengthened supply chain, value chain and share resources among each other, all of these sorts of things start to build community, a market and an industry rather than individual competition.” Jonathan Hera, Managing Partner of Marigold Capital
