In this episode I spoke with Joshua Haynes, Founder and Managing Partner of Masawa Impact Fund in Berlin. Masawa is the first impact fund specializing in mental wellness, and is currently targeting a EUR 15-30 million close. They work with early-stage founders, mostly in Europe, and are committed to an approach they call Nurture Capital. Find out more at: https://masawa.fund
The EVPA Impact Funds Initiative podcast is a series of interviews with Europe’s leading investors for impact. In every episode we look at the personal journeys of fund managers, who were the first to blend the creation of impact with the practice of making return-oriented investments. While being full of practical knowledge about the challenges and opportunities of raising funds and managing capital, their stories also convey the excitement of setting sail for new horizons. The podcast was developed in a partnership with European Venture Philanthropy Association (EVPA).
